From an interview with
~ Lisa Harper ~
I remember in college being reminded in our small group that we are human "beings", not human "doings". I was very busy in college - a different busy than I am now. I truly learned that my busyness was incredibly unhealthy! I was running - mostly away from my past and thus away from God - the One that could save me.
I heard this verse for the first time during a college retreat:
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
We practiced a day of silence - where we went off alone and meditated, prayed and wept in front of the Lord. This verse became real to me and I am often reminded of it when life seems out of control. I need to step back, be still and breath.
I pray that you may find time to be still and know God.
