Be Still

Ok so this song means a lot to me. Not only because of its beauty and faith scented lyrics, but because of its delivery in my life.

It was evening and I had just gotten back from a church thing where I had just finished relishing in revealing a lie that was hidden deep in my heart telling me I was responsible for the malfunction of my brother’s life. If you’ve ever been there you know, but if you haven’t, know that for me that was the most painful experience of my life even though it lasted for a short while. At the end, while sitting there drenched in my tears almost shaking in fear,  I asked God to just speak some truth into my life and he said “Be still, I am Lord” and when I got home this is the song I was given.

Be still and know that I’m with you
Be still and know that I am here
Be still and know that I’m with you
Be still, be still, and know

When darkness comes upon you
And covers you with fear and shame
Be still and know that I’m with you
And I will say your name

If terror falls upon your bed
And sleep no longer comes
Remember all the words I said
Be still, be still, and know

And when you go through the valley
And the shadow comes down from the hill
If morning never comes to be
Be still, be still, be still

If you forget the way to go
And lose where you came from
If no one is standing beside you
Be still and know I am

Be still and know that I’m with you
Be still and know I am

Psalm 46:10 “Be Still and know that I am God.”
