Speechless



Psalm 37:7 (NIV) Be still (silent) before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.

How often does the Bible tell us to slow down and spend time with God?  This ‘be still’ is particularly interesting because, in the original Hebrew, it means to be so astonished that you can’t speak.  Awestruck.  Speechless.

Have you noticed the trees turning colors?  My personal preference is early fall, when one brilliant red tree stands out among a sea of green or a maple with bright orange tips still has a green core.  My children know every beautiful tree along our usual routes.  I am definitely not speechless, instead exclaiming ‘Look at that!’ or ‘How beautiful!’  But I am awestruck.  Sometimes it takes my breath away.

May each beautiful tree be a reminder of God’s incredible creativity and the many beautiful blessings He bestows on us!
