Sabbath Keeping


"Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world."

"The word LISTEN contains the 
same letters as the word SILENT."

"The sound of gentle stillness after all the thunder and wind have passed will be the ultimate word from God." ~ Jim Elliot ~

"Everything takes time.
Bees have to move very fast in order to stand still."

"When you change the way you look at things, 
the things you look at change."
~ Wayne Dyer

"Whenever there is stillness there is the still small voice, God's speaking from the whirlwind, nature's old song and dance..."
~ Annie Dillard ~

"When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage. So long as mists envelop you, be still; be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists -- as it surely will. Then act with courage."
~ Ponca Chief White Eagle ~

"Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance." ~ Morgan Freeman ~

"Once I knew only darkness and stillness... my life was without past or future... but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living." ~ Helen Keller ~

"And He awoke and rebuked the wind
and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still! 
And the wind ceased and there was great calm."

  4. Dear Sandra ~ This is about the 3rd or 4th piece I've read on 'being still' in the past few weeks. I think God is trying to tell me something.

    Thank you for these great quotes.

    May God's blessings be on those of your prayer list.

    Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

  8. Dear me, the Methodist church sign must cause all who pass something to ponder, it did me. I do love all the references in the Bible about being quiet. I have them written down in a notebook somewhere, not many but more than I thought.
