Dear friend,   

Each week here at The Christian Working Woman we receive such encouraging feedback of how this ministry empowers and people to live out their faith. Your gifts of encouragement and support are a valuable part of this ministry. Thank you for your partnership.

You are familiar with this verse: “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). But how? In a world still reeling from a pandemic and our lives still in stages of upheaval, how can you put this simple, critical discipline in place in your life?

Well, you can be sure that it won’t just happen. You have to be very intentional about it, and then, if you’re like me, you need helps, reminders, gimmicks—whatever—to get you to this “be still” place where you can meditate on who God is. Just that; nothing more or less. Sounds easy, but not so. Simple, uncomplicated, yes, but not easy.

So, we want to encourage you to be still and capture your reflections and thoughts, as you set aside a place and time to be still. Recall who God is to you—beginning with the truth that he is your heavenly Father. I find that putting things in writing is extremely helpful in focusing my mind and my thoughts, so I highly recommend it.

I hope you were able to be with us for our June Zoom Get Together with Aubrey Sampson. Her message on lament was powerful and her suggestions will definitely help you “be still” and  grow closer to God. If you missed it or want to listen again, you’ll find it here. You will be encouraged.

Let us know how we can pray for you. You can call us at 630.462.0552 or leave your request here.
