Thursday, August 19th - Becoming More Still
Happy Thursday, friends!! In following with the theme of the week, today we are looking at the adverb form of our word of the week: still.
We use still as an adverb to emphasize that something is continuing. You know..
After 40 years they are still in love.
I ate three donuts and I’m still hungry.
It is still raining.
You get the point.
One of my favorite worship songs recently felt appropriate to share today. I’ve linked it below!
The lyrics talk about the miracles of Jesus- how he healed the leper and rebuked shame. The chorus goes like this:
“Oh, how precious
This priceless love
I've come to know
And in the midst of
My darkest storm
I know the blood is still the blood”
How beautiful that the same blood that healed the leper and calmed the storm is the same blood that rebukes my shame and calls me into deeper identity and peace everyday!? I mean, I just can’t get over it. The same Jesus who raised Lazarus from the grave is still raising my joy everyday. The same Jesus who taught Mary to sit in His presence is still the same Jesus who is reminding me everyday that I am not measured by my task list.
If you are in a season of waiting and wondering when He is going to show up- rest assured- He will.
If you’re still waiting for healing.
If you’re still waiting for reconciliation.
If you’re still waiting for peace.
If you’re still waiting for the one.
If you’re still waiting for your miracle.
Rest assured friend- I know the blood is still the blood. It’s still more than enough for you and for me!!
Instead of focusing on what you still don’t have- focus on what we know HE is still doing.
He still heals.
He still restores.
He still provides.
What “He still…” statement do you need to cling to today?
