Be Still and Know

Guess who got memorydex supplies for Christmas?! I'm so excited because I've been wanting to create faithdex cards, and now I have the tools to do it with! 

 I'm starting the year off with Psalm 46:10, He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” 

Be Still = cease, let go, relax, be quiet

Know = perceive, see, acknowledge, learn

Sometimes stillness is chosen, and sometimes it's forced upon us by life events. This year I'm feeling the need to choose more quiet time to listen, meditate, and nourish my soul with the Word of God. 

Another interpretation of "'be still" can also be a command to stop trying to do everything in our own strength and by our own understanding; a directive to actively put our faith and trust in God. This is equally important in the life of a Christian. 

Thought to ponder: The verse tells us that God WILL BE exalted. Will He be exalted in my life?

Today's faithdex card features two NEW products from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Their beautiful new Flourish Background stamp and Delicate Doily die.

I hadn't heard of memorydex, that is pretty cool, something you can go back to time and time again, you did a beauty here, lovely bouquet of flowers and we all could use some time to be quiet and still and wait on the Lord to guide our paths!
