Consider your ability to "sit still"

Mama, sit before you walk

Here’s the deal—your SIT then WALK matters. Remember to move at your own pace, not someone else's.

Your honest answers to the questions below will help you assess your ability to "sit still".

1. Are you unable to remain still?

If not, Why not?

If Yes, for how long?

2. Are you attempting to remain still?

If not, Why not?

If Yes, for how long?

3. Are you able to remain still comfortably?

If not, Why not?

If Yes, for how long?

Life is a journey of unexpected twists and turns, not a race to the finish line. Don't miss out on the beauty of your trip by allowing anyone other than Jesus to dictate your speed.

If you're not enjoying the journey, you may be in the wrong lane, trying to navigate too many lanes, moving at the wrong pace, or not paying attention to your steps. Take some time to 'sit still', listen, and discern the right time and place to take the next step.

Re-read the 3 questions above and figure out where you need to spend some time. Remember, no condemnation. You, me, all of us...we're a beautiful work in progress.

Here are 4 verses that will encourage you to find peace, rest, and comfort in God, and to trust in His presence and power even when you feel anxious, overwhelmed or don't think you have time to "sit still". These words remind us that sometimes the best thing we can do is to 'sit still', wait on the Lord, and listen for His voice.

"Be still, and know that I am God." - Psalm 46:10
"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him." - Psalm 62:1
"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still." - Exodus 14:14
"But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me." - Psalm 131:2

Save these 4 scriptures. Write them in your journal. Post them in your house so you remember how powerful it is to "sit and be still".

While you take the time to "sit still" listen to the song "Peace Be Still" by The Belonging Co in our Walk it Out Playlist (link on our website) and sing these words out loud (dare you). It's 6:28 minutes. Take the time to "sit" and listen.

"Peace, be still

Say the word and I will

Set my feet upon the sea

Till I'm dancing in the deep"

Let these lyrics remind you to "sit still" and listen to God's voice, to find comfort and refuge in His love, and to trust in His plan for your life.

Let me know which verse spoke to you the most. Psalm 46:10 and Exodus 14:14 are two scriptures that consistently remind me to "sit still" before, during, and after I walk out my day. What did you think of the song?

I was shouting with a giant smile, LET FAITH RISE UP OH HEART BELIEVE...I pray you do the same.

Mama, are you ready to step into freedom and Walk Out your Best life?

Come WALK with us...We WALK differently, faithfully & take the time to "sit still".
