Sunday Verses

Devotion on Being Content
Happy Sunday! How do you quiet your soul? Seems like slowing down and being still should be easy enough, but for many of us, it isn't. And in this season when we are trying to create some normalcy amidst uncertainty and upheaval, contentment seems even more challenging. David, the author of this verse, certainly knew about living a life of strife. He experienced fear and weariness, defeat and what it felt like to be overwhelmed. And because of this, he absolutely understood the importance of stillness and the gift of peace and being at ease. As Christmas approaches, I can't help but think that there was no room at the busy, overcrowded inn for Mary and Joseph because incarnate love needed to enter into this world in place of calmness and stillness. Today, this week, let's practice being still. Find a place to sit with the quiet, notice contentedness, look for serenity and in it, recognize Jesus and the love and peace that can only come from him.
