Feeling swamped today? Mired in the mud of a mad busyness? Is that sinking sensation threatening to pull you under? Desperation flooding your soul? The clouds of uncertainty moving in unabated?

I've been there! And, when it seemed like hope had evaporated, God whispered forcefully yet lovingly, "Be still and know that I am God."

Hear His still small voice today in the midst of your crisis. Fall into His arms. Give up your striving and yield every thread of your being to Him. He cares! He really does!

"Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you. " - 2 Chronicles 20:15,17 (NIV)


  1. Thank you, Pilgrim. God must have told you to post that just for me. My dad is in such pain like I've never seen...and it is breaking my heart. Of course, not just mine, but everyone else's here. I keep telling myself God is still here, and He hears my prayers, but you know how hard it is?!

    God bless you,

  2. Dear David...I figured it must of been you that put this post over at Pilgrim Pals.
    I have been wondering how you were lately and I guess you have been swamped with so much!
    I hope that things will lighten up a little for you.
    Not only does your own family need you, we need you too!

    I am sorry Little Pilgrim to hear that your dad is in such extreme pain again. We will continually be praying for him, and for your whole Terry

  3. Thank you, Mrs. Shirkie! Some days it is just so hard...
