still, my soul be still
After a very busy weekend, in which we celebrated family and worked together to throw a fantastic wedding party, I drove home from Tallahassee in a bit of a fog. I wasn't able to write this weekend and not having that time made me acutely aware of how writing is a centering practice for me. It's where I begin to hash out things before the Lord and listen for His voice. I felt a bit unanchored this weekend without this. On my way home yesterday, I popped in some music of my dad's and this song encouraged my heart. Keith and Kristyn Getty are lovely songwriters - modern hymnists who convey beautifully the realities of our Lord and the gospel. Let it be an encouragement to yours as you start this week - that you would settle your soul in His presence, contented that He is the Lord of peace even in times of upheaval and weariness.
