IN THE STILLNESS


 
Okay, I’ll admit, I’m guilty. I am one of those people who said and beloved this pandemic would last for a month. And here is August presenting a new normal.
 
I’ve found myself swaying from days where I’m fully productive and on go mode, to days I genuinely do not want to leave the house, or even move from bed.
But that’s balance right.
 
There is power in stillness.
 
This work culture had seeped my mind and I was obsessed with “grinding” even if my grinding showed no results. 
How humbling it has been for me to sit and be at one with my thoughts.
 
I’ve had to evaluate reevaluate my life. I’ve had to cut things off I thought I would do forever. And mostly, I’ve had no where else to hide from myself. I have so much work to do on me. 
 
Quarantine has taught me that yoga is probably more helpful than I could have imagined. And the power of sneaking a workout in everyday. Thanks to Kylie Achieng i now have FitBit that gave me 90 days trial of their premium program. Soon I may start using the Nike Running App.
 
Rebranding has meant being ready to let go of so many things and evolve into a new space. Does it mean I won’t miss it, miss the things I used to do. Of course not, they formed me. But I have to let the past go and focus on building my future.
 
The faithfulness of God. It occurred to me how lucky so many of us have been. Roofs over our heads, food in our bellies, shoes on our bodies. Those with jobs and something to survive on. Despite everything I have seen God continue to stay faithful.
 
So in stillness, I have found myself. Rediscovered who I am, facing the parts of me I don’t like, and forcing me to work on them.
In stillness I have found answers and purpose.
I’m stillness I’ve heard more of God. Felt Him more, his correction, his discipline, his love, his never ending grace.
 
Perhaps God really wanted us to take a moment and just be still, and revaluate who we are and what we hope to achieve. What we need to correct and improve.
 
Be still.
 
Embrace the stillness
