A Place to 'Be'

>> Monday, January 17, 2011

Our daughter visited this weekend. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. And then she said some words that resonated within me.

“This is a place where you can just ‘be’.”

I agree.  I find time to just ‘be’ in my home. And others have mentioned the peace they feel here.

Isn’t that how we are supposed to feel as a Christian? Doesn’t Jesus want us to just ‘be’ in His presence? Yes, there is time for ‘doing’ … just as we took time to go to church, cook, eat, and take a walk.

As a Christian, we need to be ‘doing’ … but first comes the ‘being’.

That reminds me of an old song:

shoo-be-do-be-do...

The "be" always comes first:)

Thanks for the reminder, Joy.

Never heard that song. Sounds like Lisa.

"As a Christian, we need to be ‘doing’ … but first comes the ‘being’."

Amen!
