I had Bible Study Fellowship this morning, my second class, and it was perfect timing. God is really teaching me to learn how to be still. This concept is far from grasping by any means, but I know what needs to be done. From a young age I have always felt that if you sit you are then in turn lazy. I should always have something to do and be doing it. My mother always told me that bored was a bad word in our house and that you make your own fun. So I am good at making my own fun as well as always being busy. So busy in fact that sometimes I forget to "be still." Today during the lecture portion of our study, I was able to sit and just listen. For me, listening is taking notes or drawing, but I was able to take pages of notes. I swear I have ADD and am always finding other things to do during sermons or lectures like doodle, plan my next piece of art, make a grocery list or think of how I'm going to finish all the things on my to do list. Even with taking large amounts of notes, I was able to concentrate solely on the Word. I can't remember the last time that I sat through anything and soaked up as much information as this. It was refreshing and it filled me up.....and not a moment too late, I was running on empty!
