In the cool of the evening, the Lord leads us beside still waters; He leads us to calm places.
Of course we usually don’t follow Him there… we are just too busy.
Did the kids get their homework done?
Did you take the trash out?
When’s dinner going to be ready?
Did you bring work home again?
Hurry up, my show’s going to start!
Young lady, it’s your turn to do those dishes!
Clean up your room!
Ah yes, the familiar sounds of domestic bliss…
You know, those calm waters are looking pretty good right about now. Isn’t there some way we can figure out how to fit the Lord into our lives; to follow Him to those still waters?
