Be Still

Some of you may be wondering where I have been. I have not been on vacation. I have not been sick. I have not even taken a blogging sabbatical. I have been right here.

In my last post I mentioned that I had recently begun a 40 day spiritual renewal. It's not a program or a church led thing. It's just something I decided to do to deepen my relationship with God. I want to fill my heart with the the Holy Spirit in a very real way. I'm not really sure what that means, but I know that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks, and it is usually Me that comes out of my mouth.

I love to blog and read blogs. I typically blog everyday. For some reason since I started this time of spiritual renewal, I have not had a desire to blog. I really haven't even thought about it. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that blogging is a bad thing. I just think that God wants me to be still. I love the passage in Psalm 46:10 where it says, Be still, and know that I am God. We usually stop there. But the passage goes on and I think the rest of the verse explains why God wants us to be still. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. For someone who leads God's people, this must be what our lives are about. I will expand on this more later.

How is this going? Any unique ways that you've allowed yourself to be filled with the spirit that you can share about?
