Thoughts

Still

College life exhausts the brain. A torrent of thoughts swirl through my mind as I evaluate my schedule, brainstorm for story pitches, lay out my studying goals, and manage life in general. And my mind is nearly dead at the end of it.

But shouldn’t every moment be productive? Shouldn’t we “take every though captive for Christ”?

Psalm 46:10 states “Be still and know that I am God,” and now I realize that this is God’s command — for our good.

Sometimes we really do need to just sit and think — about absolutely nothing. And be still. Not sitting in the train, not waiting for the bus, not sitting at your desk in front of all your textbooks, but sitting in a quiet, empty place and letting the beauty and goodness of God and the world wash over you.

“Be still and know that I am God.”
