FRIDAY SHOWCASE: Be Still and Know

A few of you know that the past 2 1/2 years have been challenging. Like thousands of other Americans, unemployment hit our household at a time when we least expected it. When a company closes overnight, it leaves hundreds of people in limbo. The job hunt has been grueling, with lines of people in similar situations snaking around buildings.  One of the jobs my husband put in for had 3,000 applicants.

We don't lose hope. We haven't given in to despair. And although we've run through all our savings now, we know from experience that God is faithful. His promises are true and steady, his love deep and wide, and through it all, he continues to bless us.  

Psalm 46:10 has been a favorite of mine for years, all the way back to my early teens. "Be still and know that I am God."
It says a lot. In fact, that single verse of Scripture says all I need to know right now.

Today's Friday Showcase will focus on that verse, because I suspect there are others who are experiencing similar plights. Whether it be a case of unemployment, worries over a sick child, or other concerns that keep you awake at night--God loves you and wants to comfort you in the midst of it all. Be still and know...
