Day 105: Just Be

Happy Thursday and Day 105 of Another 100 Days of Hannah, y'all!
 
This morning is yet another 'I don't know what to write about' morning.
 
Probably because I always struggle more with writing when I don't feel like I have anything 'important' to say.
 
But, that's a topic that we've been through before, so I won't rehash that whole argument.
 
Does anyone else feel like they just have months where they're not... with it?
 
I definitely do.
Okay, they don't always last months, but there are definitely times where it's like - I know who I normally am, I know who I want to be, and who I am right now... isn't either one of those.
 
Which, at least for me, is very frustrating.
And so, admittedly, I like to fight it.
To keep pushing rather than simply... being.
 
Which in some ways isn't a bad thing.
I mean, it's good to push yourself, right?
It's good to try to be the best you can be.
And, let's be real, if I only did what I felt like most days, I wouldn't get much of anything accomplished.

But as I push and strive toward the goal of peace, I find that it only slips away all the more.

In Psalm 46:10, we are encouraged to be still and know that [He] is God.
 
Y'all - there's something so powerful about being still.
Just... resting.

(Even though I'll admit - I'm generally pretty terrible at doing it.)

Because when we are still, when we rest in His presence, everything else fades away.
Our sins are forgiven.
Our shame is washed away.
Our fears are put to rest.
Our hearts are comforted.
Our joy is made complete.

And we are freed to just... be.
 
'Til tomorrow,
 
Hannah
