Being Still in the Busy

5 Sep

Be still, and know that I am God!
Psalm 46:10
As women today, we are busier than ever.
Our daily schedules are filled with so much – from taking care of our families to working outside the home – and we are trying so hard to be all things to all the people in our lives. We have become overwhelmed and stressed with all the things we have filling our days. It has become a challenge to find the time to be still in the busy.
In Lisa Chan‘s first video in the True Beauty: Finding Your Identity in Jesus series, she shares how we, as women, have lost sight of God in the midst of all the busy when He is inviting us to Be Still.

Through Lisa’s teaching and Sarah’s story, we are reminded how life-changing making time to sit and be quiet with the Lord can be for us. To open His Word. Sharing our hearts with Him and letting Him speak to our hearts.

In Luke 10 we hear the story of Jesus visiting Martha and Mary. Martha is busy preparing a meal while Mary sits at His feet. Martha is frustrated that Mary isn’t helping her and Jesus speaks to her.

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:41-42

We have access to the same Jesus everyday.
Why don’t we choose to sit at His feet?
– Lisa Chan

I loved this teaching and I believe it is something that
other women will challenged and encouraged by as well.

    I love Francis Chan but who knew that his wife was so wise and well-spoken. I loved the video and I really resonate with the message, Wendy. I'm pushing back the pressure to stay busy and making time for God each day and all throughout my day. Thanks for sharing!

    Lately, I have been convicted of that too. We don't have to worry about everything, our job is to just be still and content in the Lord. What a blessing that is!

    So true Becky! Being content in Him! Blessings!

    I think I get too caught up in all that has to be done so I feel like I don't have time to just be still. This series would be so helpful to me. Thanks for sharing!

    Such truth. We desperately need that time to sit at Jesus' feet. Thanks for sharing with WIP!
