Be still and know. Words you’ve probably heard before, maybe seen on a home decor item. Most of you may know it’s from the Bible, but today I want to look deeper into this beside what’s on the surface.
Recently, I came across a small framed picture with these words on it. It reminded me of a book I read called Felt Time, which explores how slowing down can change our perception of time. When we take the time to be still, it can actually make time feel slower, especially when it seems to be flying by.
So today, I want to challenge you to embrace the idea of being still and knowing. Take a moment to pause and observe what’s happening around you. Take a deep breath and slow down, because sometimes that’s exactly what we need.
Being still allows us to truly see and understand the world. It gives us the opportunity to see little things going wrong and find new perspectives. Taking a break and being still is not a sign of weakness or falling behind; it’s a necessary step towards finding clarity and regaining control.
So, the next time you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or frustrated, remember to be still and know. Trust that everything will be okay. Take a moment to collect yourself and see the world with fresh eyes. You might just find the answers you’ve been searching for.
