Be Still

It was a day when everything seemed to be going wrong. I was rushing from one thing to another, with the clock running away from me. As I hurried to yet another commitment, the traffic was extra heavy and I was catching every red light.

As I stopped at yet another red light, a wonderful thing happened. The traffic seemed it quieten and over the clear air I could hear a lone bird singing for all he was worth. He wasn’t fazed by the traffic, the dirt or the need to rush along.

As the lights turned to green I thanked my Maker for this glimpse of sanity. A lone bird singing praises to his maker, which I could join in.

Ps 46:10 of the Message says ‘Step out of the traffic. Take a long loving look at Me, your High God.’
