Kate said, “STILL.”
Still: the absence of movement. (Susan’s dictionary)
Don’t move. Sit still. Stop wiggling. Can’t you sit still for even a moment?
My hubs did hair for fifty years – he took a long hiatus from it 1988 through 2012 but he never stopped doing my hair and the above phrases are those he has used with ME!
It’s hard for me to sit still. Especially when I am having some sort of service done for me. Hair. Nails. Feet. Etc. Because I like to control my stillness.
Man, it always go back to some form of control, doesn’t it?
I’ll sit still if I want to. I don’t have to. (that’s rebellious me speaking.)
So, when God got into my space one early 2012 morning and said, “SIT STILL MY DAUGHTER,” I was sure He was talking to someone else. Only problem? No one else was around.
He was referring to a very specific person and a very specific issue.
Susan, you are to do nothing. SIT STILL MY DAUGHTER. TAKE HEED AND BE QUIET.
For ten months I took heed. Sat still and was quiet.
God was at work and didn’t need any assistance from me.
[scripture references: Ruth 3.18 and Isaiah 7.4]
Kate said STILL in November 2014 also, you can read that post here.
