Aperture of Light

Peace in the water

This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to visit one of my favorite places.  God blessed me with a little bit of surf, awesome friends and amazing weather for November!  It was like a mini-vacation.  God promised to transform us through the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:12) and sometimes He does that best when we simply, Be still and know that He is God.  (Psalm 46:10) These were some of the last words that my grandmother ever spoke to me before she passed away about 3 years ago.  She knew how much I ran around trying to find meaning and never just slowing down to just know God.  Back then, I didn’t fully comprehend those words, and I guess I still haven’t completely because God keeps showing me new ways of understanding this.  They sound so simple but can teach you so much!

I flipped open my Bible this weekend and happened to look right at that verse again.  Even when I think I’m “stilling” myself, God tells me again. haha.
