First Hurdle Was Stillness

(Kathy Gabler)—After waking in a funk, stillness was my first hurdle.  Two scriptures came to mind.  The first was Jn 14:1, Let not your heart be troubled.  I had taught on that scripture a few times and knew it meant “don’t let your heart be agitated, tossed to and fro, restless, perplexed with doubt, stirred up, struck with fear and dread or anxious and distressed”.  Since I had woken up in that very condition, my challenge was to find a way out of the troubling.  After rereading my own notes, I knew one positive step was to hold my peace, or keep my mouth shut.  Peace leaves our heart on the wings of our words and all that is left is trouble’s rubble.  (Second excerpt from Kathy’s article “Trust Gives God Access” Vol.22Iss3)
