It’s our routine and what we do every night. The same routine we had with all of our sweet babies.
Abide, remain, dwell.
Abiding in Christ Jesus is the goal of our life.
The bible gives us so many scriptures that teach us that truth.Rest, remain, be still, dwell, delight, abide…
Yet we cover ourselves with man made materials.
We mock any sort of rest.
We run and are constantly planning out the next move.
We look for the new, the better, the perfect.
Rest, remain, dwell, abide.
How do we abide in a culture that doesn’t remain still?
1. Be purposeful in the quiet times.
Those rare times where the babes are sleeping and the house is still, revel in the stillness. Put aside the electronics that are never quiet with the constant dinging of notifications and instead, sit in the presence of the almighty and dwell in Him. Rest. Breathe. Be.
2. Surrender your plans and purpose in those moments.
Write out everything that is weighing on you. The pressures and worries, the doubts and fears and then hand it over, one by one. Allow Him to take the burden and lift them off your shoulders.
3. Be quiet. Listen. Don’t think.
Allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate your heart and mind and be in awe of who your God is, as your thoughts turn to His thoughts and your heart is filled with His great love for you.
Abide in His truths and ask Him to direct your paths, provide you peace and strengthen your faith.
