I awoke this morning with a line from Psalms 46:10 in my head:
Be still and know that I am God.
That will be my mantra for today. I anticipate having to be in a stressful situation this afternoon. I have been trying to be aware of the Paulian instruction to 'pray without ceasing' and in doing so understand that my entire life is a prayer, that everything I do and think can be a way of reflecting God. Being still, being centered, is the best way I know for me to be aware of God.
