“Be still and know that I am God” Reflection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid

Jane Pimenta:  Spiritual Writer of the decade!  Congratulations:  New World

 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”  Ps 46:10 

In Goa, where I now live, I was taking my walk down a path were there were some people fishing in a river.  One of them caught something, and there was a shout and a lot of joy that someone had caught a fish.  Filled with curiosity, I looked to see how big the fish was, and I saw a small fish struggling on the line as the person pulled him in.

My mind immediately went to my life.  I asked myself, why I struggle like that fish with my life instead of letting Jesus pull me in?   I struggle  till I am really tired and then when I cannot do anything more, I invite the Lord into my situation.   Why can’t I invite Him into the situation as soon as I face it?  Why spend days of struggling and worry?   Maybe you would like to try asking yourself these questions too?  Assuming you are struggling with life.
