Be Still
by Jody R Goode
4/12/82



My mind is like a turbulent sea
each wave and splash of water
bringing frustration,
anxiousness.

My God says, "be still".

This day, can there be found any good in it?
Each turn I make I find more
trouble,
confusion.

My Father says, "be still".

The world, moving so fast,
too fast.
Where are they going?
Where am I going?

My Comforter says, "be still".

I feel alone - though there are crowds surrounding me.
Will I get lost?
Who will find me?

My Friend says, "I am with you, be still".

The Lord is my God, my Father, my Comforter, my Friend...

In Him I (will) find rest and peace.

With Him I find the power to
...be still.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Love it! Javin read it aloud for us and his emphasis on 'Be still' found his shoulder going up and down. It is a great reminder to us today. Be Still! Trust God to work it all out...

A very good poem, Jody. I've often found 'being still' to be the hardest thing to do, even when I'm physically still. My mind and heart rush off in a hundred different directions with a thousand different anxieties, but as you said, God commands us to be still.
