Be Still and Know

“Be still and know that I am Lord!  I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”  Psalm 46:10

I, like many others, go through times of depression in my life.  The last time I struggled with depression I began thinking of ways I normally try and get myself jump-started and moving forward.  As I continued down that line of thinking I came to the realization that this was the very action I needed to avoid.  In life, we as humans are always doing something or starting something.  We strive to do and create and matter in this life so much so that we often end up acting like we are in fact God.  We would never make this claim, well most of us anyway, but our actions make that very claim.  We try and control our lives and things that happen in this world instead of calling on God and waiting for His reply and watching for His action.
