Be Still...


Dear Friend,

  It seems like each day is more hectic than the last. A few weeks ago we were busily packing that month’s Bette’s Box of Blessings, sliding it into the mailing envelope and sticking on the postage. At the same time we were discussing and deciding on the contents of a future Box and following up on the products that we had already ordered. (When will they get here? Where will we store them until it’s time to pack the Box? What else can we get that will match the theme?! There’s so much still to do…!)

At the end of the day the hectic pace continued as I fought the traffic and headed to the grocery store to pick up some things for dinner. It wasn’t until after dinner when I was looking at my list of things I wanted to get done that night that this month’s theme verse came to mind: Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10) I had to laugh at myself for not applying this well known verse to myself!

So here’s this month’s Box of Blessings, built around the theme, Be Still…:

I am a big fan of Denise J. Hughes.  Her Word Writers Bible Study series is very powerful and I often wondered what kind of life a person like this lived that would give her such a deep understanding of the struggles in life.  Well, her book Deeper Waters takes us on her journey of life's disappointments and hurts that produced the questions and doubts that we all face. She tells us how she discovered time alone in His presence does more to quiet a soul than anything this world can offer.  You will be totally drawn into her story and learn that to be still and listen has become the quiet anthem of her prayer life.  Be still and know that I am God.  Psalm 46:10 

There is a clipboard in this month’s Box that says Be Still across the wrapping and has the scripture, “The Lord is my light and my salvation” (Ps. 27:1) on the note paper.  How perfect is that!   

The beautiful gift book Sacred Rest has 100 devotions that offer prayers, scripture verses, personal insights, and biblical perspectives on God's loving gift and command to us: Rest.  Be Still.  Accept God's invitation, and taste the welcome relief of a life balanced in His rest.

A sweet friend of mine, Abby Merkel, is featured on the song More than Enough on the CD titled Strong God, which was recorded live at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, where I love to worship when I am in the area visiting family.  This CD even has an accompanying DVD to make the experience that much more worshipful.  Enjoy God's presence and rest!

Included in this month’s Box is a lovely pack of assorted Christian greeting cards. Each card has a timeless hymn on the back. 

My favorite card is the one that says:

Sending love and prayers and a hug for your heart.

So glad God knows and cares about EVERY detail.

The hymn on the back is 'Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus. So true!

With all the modern conveniences and technology that we have, you’d think our lives would be more relaxing. Instead, all these “advances” seem to contribute to a more hectic and stressful life. So how much more important it is to take seriously this month’s theme verse… Be still and know that I am God. So take a moment to be still and spend it with God. Whether it’s reading Denise’s book Deeper Waters, or reflecting on some of the devotions in Sacred Rest, or simply worshipping along with the Strong God CD, I know that this month’s Box will bless you with a rest that is sacred. 

Oh, and by the way, another blessing?

The retail value of this month’s Box is $91.14!! 

Praying that you will have the opportunity to be still and spend time with God,

Bette
