How can something so simple be so hard?

“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” Anita Desai 

Yesterday I left you a list of things that jumped off the page for me. The one that holds my attention the most was "Take your hands off your life".  Whatever you are facing, juggling, or trying to resolve, stop and take your hands off and disengage your problem solving skills. 

How can something so simple be so hard? "
True faith is living without scheming."     

In the verse below that has those precious words we have heard thousands of times, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD...   The Hebrew word translated "be still" actually means "take your hands off."   That my friends is exactly what we are suppose to do.  With these wild winds taming down to gentle breezes... I realized how much stress had dissipated out of my life the last 48 hours. I actually read a book yesterday, cleaned the kitchen and the dishes, watched TV that I had recorded and spent time with my sweet husband.  God has this. 

God has it for you as well.  Take your Hands off your life.  

Psalm 46:8-11 
Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields[a] with fire.  He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."   The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
