Psalm 46 | Be Still

Psalm 46 | Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God.” ~Psalm 46:10 I started into my normal quiet time routine this morning, but I just kept hearing, “Stephanie, be still.” So I did. I put everything away and just got still. I listened. I praised. I worshiped. I just let myself be...
