Advent: Wednesday, December 7
Posted on December 7, 2016 by Sister Carol Perry

Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him. – Psalm 37:7

Sometimes on a journey, we do have to be still: to rest, consult a map, solve a problem. However, being still is one of the hardest things for us humans to do. We have to be “up and about” or we feel that we are somehow missing something. But stillness is one of the places where God can be found. Since this journey is not just to reach a goal but to become someone new on the way, we will need times of stillness.

In prayer this day, let us do as the psalmist suggests. Be still and wait.
