How can you stay still in God’s presence amidst your busy life?
In an episode of A Life You Love, host Renee Evans and guest Lorissa Miller, co-founder of Upper Room shares the importance of staying still in the presence of God. In this busy world, we live in, we tend to associate our busy schedule with our purpose and significance. The busier our schedule gets, the more we feel significant. But that is not what the Lord wants us to feel. He wants us to see the eternal perspective of life.
“I want to have an eternal perspective of my life, I want to find the best thing,” Lorissa said. “They’re all the things, but what is the best thing? I could be scrubbing my floors but what is the best thing? So I think that stillness is so like in sitting, not just sitting in stillness, the world can sit in stillness, but we sit with Him.”
Just like the story of Martha and Mary, most of us choose to be like Martha and be preoccupied with our works for His Kingdom. The truth is, Jesus wants us to be like Mary, staying still in His presence amidst the things happening around her.
“It reminds me of the Scripture that talks about not getting away from the purity and some simple devotion to Jesus. Jesus is simple and if I think about the people listening today, I want them to know that He’s simple. When He preached, He preached to illiterate crowds,” she explained.
It’s just simple to stay still in His presence and it’s what matters the most to Jesus. Turn everything into worship and no matter how busy your life gets, always put God first.
“Simple, it’s simple to come before Him and ask for what you need and let Him feed your heart.”
