“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”- Psalm 37:7 NIV
Deactivating my Facebook has done “do not fret” wonders. I don’t miss the scrolling, scrolling, envying, laughing, scrolling, judging; feeling guilty…then chiding myself for allowing my eyes to burn into a bright rectangle for 20 minutes. And repeat.
Instead, I am still.
Who decided to do away with the discipline of sitting still anyway? It commanded us throughout elementary school; maybe even middle & high school. But now, we don’t do it.
What keeps you from sitting still?
Is it worth it?
