Psalm 46

Psalm 46 — a great comfort

When we have doubts or are facing difficulties, when others suggest courses of actions that are conflicting, when caution dictates one course but faith another, we should be still. We should quiet each intruding person, calm ourselves in the sacred stillness of God's presence, study His word for guidance, and with true devotion focus our attention on Him... ~Streams in the Desert
John was chatting with his daughter recently who so happened to be caring for her grandson that day. She shared that the little fellow had recently spoken his first words and that they had been, "Hold Still." We rather like that and can't think of much better advice, especially when one is uncertain.

Our hearts are with Newtown today. My prayer is that they, too, will "Hold Still" that they might circle the wagons and keep the intruders at bay. They have everything they need within their community to move forward when the time is right. And the Lord most certainly is with them and will guide.

Many blessings to you this Sunday...
