Be still and know that I AM GOD: A Mystic Monday Morsel

[The following poem was written by a parishioner at Sacred Heart Bluefield. The title and refrain are from Psalm 46:10. Think about it. Pray about it. Believe it!]

Be Still and Know that I AM GOD

When, in the dark stillness of the night, and
your demons are dancing in your head,
Be still and know that I AM GOD…

When, in the morning hours, and
you cannot keep up with the needs of the day,
Be still and know that I AM GOD…

When, in the rush hour of the afternoon, and
the noisiness of the world makes you frantic,
Be still and know that I AM GOD…

When in the soft dusk of the evening, and
your mind wanders to doubts about yesterday, today and tomorrow,
Be still and know that I AM GOD.
