“Be still and know that i'm God. i'll be exalted among the nations, i'll be exalted in the earth.”
“Trust in the God and do good; dwell within the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the God, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your thanks to the LORD; trust in him, and he will always act. He will bring of forth your goodness as the light and your justice as the noonday.
Be still before the GOD and wait with patience for him
“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He solely is my rock and my lifeline, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my lifeline and my glory; my mighty rock, my safty is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God may be a safty for us
Be Still My Soul
Be still, my soul: the God is on your side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to your God to order and provide;
In every change, He trustful will remain.
Be still, my soul: give your best, your heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: your God do undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;
All currently mysterious shall be bright ultimately.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.
Be still, my soul: once beloved friends depart,
And all is darkened within the valley of tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes quit your sorrow and your fears.
Be still, my soul: your god can pay back
From His own fullness all He takes away.
Be still, my soul: the hour is fast on
When we shall be forever with the Lord.
When disappointment, grief, and worry and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored .
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise
On earth, believing, to your God on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways ,
So shall He read thee with a well-pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall shall but more brightly shine.
I read these words only a struggling days All of it, the total hymn, are words of such comfort, truth, rest, glory, praise, grace. But that day, the one line that stood out to me most, that gave me the most comfort and joy, was from the hymn… “Be still, my soul: your god can payback, from His own fullness, all He takes away.” Praise the God. This lifestyle of mine is so transient, so much taken away all at once when I leave one place for another. But I always know that god payback what He takes away; and He doesn’t pay from earthly things but from His own fullness! What a promise. He is so faithful.
