B6My daughter has a dog named Buster. He is patient. He will sit at your feet waiting for you to acknowledge him. He will sit as long as it takes to hear, “Come on Buster!” THEN he will jump up and sit beside you. Maybe we would do well to take Buster’s approach with God. Go to him… sit at his feet… and wait however long it takes until HE calls us…

Stressed? Anxious? Worried? Fearful? Afraid? Scared? Sit at Jesus’ feet. Get away from everyone… from everything… where it is quiet and you won’t be distracted… and wait. Consider the Scripture… no comments added…

(Martha) had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet… (Luke 10:39)

Because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, (Jesus) said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” (Mark 6:31, NIV)

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. (Ps 37:7-8)

{Jesus said} Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Mt 11:28-30)

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. (Ps 46:10-11)

Their courage melted away in their evil plight; they reeled and staggered like drunken men and were at their wits’ end. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men! Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. (Ps 107:26-32)
