This Week For Sunday

A few days ago, Levi, my 1.5 year old, was upset. I don’t remember what for (it probably had something to do with his brother), but when Levi get’s upset, he gets UPSET. Everyone in the neighborhood knows it; he screams as if the world is falling apart.

As his father, I wanted to comfort and show him that his world truly wasn’t falling apart. I wanted to calm his nerves and his stress. I wanted to give him a peace that he didn’t have on his own.

I picked him up and began to hold him close. He wasn’t cooperating and he wouldn’t be still. It’s like he was trying to console himself by flailing all around. Or, he was so caught up in his stress that he failed to see that I was holding him. In that moment I began to speak. I quickly realized the words coming from my mouth were not only meant for my son, but Jesus was speaking to me through my own mouth. He said, “I can’t help you if you’re not willing to be still.”

How many times are we so caught up in our busy, stressful, overwhelming days that we fail to see God moving to comfort us? How many times do we ignore it and take no time to be still? How many times have we been so caught up in our drama that we miss the Father trying to give us peace?

While music and praise is a form of worship, so is rest. So is stopping to receive God’s gift of peace. As you go through your week, take time to be still.

“Be still and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10

I am a southern boy that loves to spend my time with my beautiful wife, Kelli, and my two boys, Liam and Levi. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and playing guitar, designing things, Braves baseball, being a husband and dad, but above all I love to worship Jesus… especially with music. I am a Creative Arts Pastor at Southern Hills Christian Church where I focus on graphic design and music.
