There were many gems of wisdom in this book, but what resonated with me the most was this
"Standing still, on some occasions, is the paramount duty of the Christ follower."
Most of the time I don't struggle with believing that God has a perfect plan for my life if I trust and follow Him. There is just something in me that believes this and has hope because of it. What I do struggle with is the waiting. I am a doer. I like to get things done and move on to the next. Patience is not something that comes naturally to me. I have to be very intentional about being patient and constantly have to give this up to the Lord. Part of my issue with always needing to do, is that I feel like I am being selfish with my time if I am not always doing. But when I actually do take the time to sit and be still, it is reassuring to know that this is sometimes exactly what God wants me to do.
Psalm 46:10 - "Be still and know that I am God."
Psalm 37:7 - "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him..."
