I’ve been listening to ‘I will be still’ by Young Oceans on repeat. I need to hear it. Have a listen.
It got me thinking about that phrase, so I wrote a poem about it.
it starts with me
an intentional choice
I will be
presence, being not doing
I will be still
stopping – stillness in my body
trust – stillness in my emotions, my soul
peace – stillness in my spirit
deep heart knowing
You are God.
You are “I am”
You are who you are
Not who I think you are or want you to be
But who you are
Your presence, being you
Healer, Provider, Shepherd, Peace
The one who sees,
The one who is present.
Who you are to me now
Who you are, not what you will do
A deep knowing and experience of that ‘who’
oozes in gently
into my body, my soul, my spirit
Jehovah-Shammah Ezekiel 48:35 “The Lord who is present”
Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God.”
