Being Still and Knowing He is God

  Busy Busy Busy....

That just seems to be the norm for an every day average family. We hear it all the time you say "How are things going?" The answer? We are just so busy lately and can't find the time. I know our family has been caught up in that. Having a growing family the kids want to try new things and join sports and dance and gymnastics etc... After praying and talking to Tyler we decided that it would be best for Faith to choose one activity, instead of doing both gymnastics and dance. That was hard because she did nothing wrong, it wasn't because we couldn't afford it. Our kids getting to be able to do an extra activity is exactly that...extra! Meaning something they enjoy doing. We realized we don't want them to get caught up in being in everything because, what is the purpose? Yes we all do something we love extra on the side but here is the thing is that extra letting you be still? Are you doing nothing and content? We live in society that says the more stuff you do the happier you'll be. Now it was our fault be cause we started Faith in letting her do both and we told her to choose and explained to her this very reason. She was such a champ and understood our whole reasoning  that was one extra thing that took from our family time and her time. I read a book called "Weird" by Craig Groeschel, a fantastic read I highly recommend it. He says" We're afraid that if we don't just run non stop and try everything this world has to offer we're going to miss out on something." That's just it you are missing out!! You're missing out on the stillness and know that he is God moments. Don't put so much on your plate that you forget those moments and take in his pure goodness. 

 Psalms 46:10  "Be still and know that I am God"
