Be Still And Know

Be still and know today that no matter what, He is for you and not against you.
Be still and know that in each and every circumstance and situation He is more than able.
Be still and know that your names are written on the palms of His hands.
Be still and know that every hair on your head is numbered.
Be still and know that He sees the end from the beginning in that very painful situation.
Be still and know that He can release His power for that marriage that needs to be resurrected.
Be still and know that He has something even better in store for you.
Be still and know that He draws near to you when you draw near to Him.
Be still and know when life seems unfair.
Be still and know that He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Be still and know that He will right every wrong and fight your battles for you-
you don't have to fight any more.
Be still and know that your latter shall be greater.
Be still and know that He hears your prayers.
Be still and know that He is working all things together for your good and His glory.
Even the really difficult things.
Be still and know that He is going to cause increase and prosperity to come upon your house.
Be still and know that He is orchestrating and ordering blessings on your behalf.
Be still and know that you are about to shine like the morning sun.
Be still sweet daughters and know that today He is pouring out .........
His peace. His joy. His love. His hope. His provision. His restoration. His recompense. His wisdom. His ideas. His strategies. His gifts. His creativity. His favor and His blessing upon you like never before.
Be still and know......

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! -Psalm 46:10

I am using one of my photos from last fall again this year! Isn't she a beauty? This is my absolute favorite type of pumpkin! We are all so excited and so thankful that Mr. P and G is finally home for a few days! So we are heading to the Pumpkin Patch in the morning and then to a Fall Fest! I absolutely love fall. I love filling our wagon with babies and pumpkins! I love eating caramel corn and drinking hot apple cider. I love the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin spice. I love the sound of my children laughing and jumping into huge piles of leaves! I love their little rosy cheeks and the way they always smell like peanut butter and apple juice. I also enjoy filling our home with the scents of this amazing season! I will post my favorite fall recipe next! I hope your weekend overflows with the abundance of this very special time of year!
