"Be Still and Know"

As long as you are in mortality, our Father in Heaven has a work for you to do. And as long as you are in mortality, He is working on you. He is changing you, prodding you on to more good, guiding you to perform the things you were born to do in your life. That's the promise of God for everyone who believes!

Watching for how God does all this is exciting. This week slow down and notice how He guides you. There is no such thing as coincidence; pay attention to the small details of your life and see how God is arranging things to happen for you. Little “gifts” show up in the form of tender mercies. Stop and be still every once in awhile and just listen for His voice or the feeling of His nearness.

If you are watching for Him, God will become evident in all facets of your life. The secret is in slowing down and paying attention so that the business of life doesn’t keep you from knowing God is near and is in charge.
