Stillness and dreaming

I think I’ve forgotten how to slow down and be still. Life is so crazy right now. Living in isolation with two young kiddos, Coronavirus news swirling in my head, trying to keep up with work and groceries and cooking.

Don’t get me wrong – I realize we are so blessed. Isolation in a house with heat, running water, access to food, the ability to get outside when it’s nice.

I think it’s more of a cultural thing. Or maybe just a me thing. But, I feel like I’ve heard others mention it too.

You’d think in isolation, it’d be way easier it slow down but instead it feels like in some ways we’re speeding up.

Which makes me more sure that it is the state of our hearts, rather than a demanding social schedule that keeps us hungry for busyness.

How are you doing living in this season of isolation and social distancing?

Like mentally, emotionally and spiritually?

Are you taking time to be still?

Not like a zombie on the couch consuming Netflix.

But like reflectively and intentionally still.

Not mindlessly scrolling through the news and social media.

But quietly still. Talking to God. Reading something that fills you up and makes you think.

Away from the screens and the noise.

Today I read an article about how important it is for moms to dream and to invite their families into that dream. It was really encouraging to me. So, I want to pass that idea on to you. What’s your dream? What’s something God has placed on your heart?

If you can’t think of one, pray and ask God.

You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” ― C.S. Lewis

And take time to just sit with God and enjoy Him.
