Be Still...

"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm." - Exodus 14:14

My heart has been unsure for quite sometime now.
Unsure about life.
Unsure about my future.
Unsure about my career path.
Unsure about my relationship with God.
Unsure about everything!

I have been unmotivated for some reason. Reasons I can not even explain as a human being. Let's just say that it is easier to have faith when things are going the way it should or when you actually see little progress coming through. 

But the real test comes when nothing seems to be happening the way it should and your whole world comes crashing down on you or so it feels like it. A week goes by, a month goes by and then a year. Still nothing seems to be happening the way it should.

I wake up everyday constantly in a battle with what we call "life." I go through life feeling stuck and this unbalance relationship with God makes my life even more stressful. Man! A day without God can really make a person feel EMPTY!! No hope what so ever! My most hated feeling I tell you. 

But today I refuse to drown myself in those feelings again. So, I decided to pray and be honest with God just like old faithful times. And while I was praying I heard a word within me say, "Be Still." I then stopped and opened up my bible to Psalms 46:10 which says, "Be still and know that I am God." 

When I think of the word STILL I think of being calm, at peace, restful and slow to anger. Practically not worried about my struggles or stress that I am dealing with in my daily life. Believing that God is always there to help you through this life is worth more than petty tears and pity. At that point everything started to make sense and I felt the comfort of God come over me.

Always remember the devil can't shake you or break you unless you allow him to.

Happy Easter To You All



  1. This is beautiful. Came across your blog on twitter when you posted the comment someone made on one of your post. I am currently a christian who has stayed on the beginner's level for way too long and I am seeking a deeper level. Hope to get to your level one day. Remain blessed

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to actually check out my blog. I am truly honored. I am guess we follow each other on twitter :) What a blessing! Also don't think you are alone at times I feel like I've been on the same level for so long. But you have to realize that you are growing. Maybe not as fast as you like but trust me I am sure you have made more improvement than you think. It sometimes takes others letting us know that :) We can be our toughest critic.

  2. Hey Deola, been following you a while now, all the way from twitter.. You always seem to write what I want to say but can't, all the struggles, everything happening to me, along this amazing and somehow walk with God..
    Feel good to read the thoughts I couldnt find the words for. Thank you, God bless, and keep rightly dividing the words of truth.
