It's like learning a new vocabulary word back in your school days. Suddenly, the word is everywhere (or it was always there, but now you have ears to hear it).
On Monday, I heard "be still" in a song. On Tuesday, I heard the words as a wise woman, a new card client actually, shared her delight in raising her children peacefully and purposefully (without all of the activities and extras we so often pursue for our children these days). On Wednesday, I heard "be still" from a group of women who gathered together in my home, one of them reminding me that I embroidered Psalm 46:10 for her nearly eight years ago. And this very morning, I heard "be still" from a friend who read something to me over the phone. Her reading began, I kid you not, "BE STILL."
So yes, I'm starting to get the message....loud and clear and in quiet whispers. I'm trying to listen and learn what these words really mean....what they might look like in day-to-day life. And rather than tell you what being still should mean for you, I'm just going to give them to you "straight up"and let them do their thing!
