Be Still

This was the view from my driveway about 6:15 this evening as I was leaving home to head to Modesto.  On the radio, Tim McGraw's new song Still was playing.  It was the first time I had heard it and it matched the scene perfectly.  We've all had those moments that are so profound, you can't ignore your senses.  Moments when you have to stop and take notice of the beauty and glory around you and acknowledge the presence of God.  After much examination of the schedule for the next 8 weeks, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed.  The photo doesn't do justice to the beautiful light that was filtering through those clouds... and the words from a song forced me to stop dead in my tracks.  I was instantly reminded of Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God."
