Still, My Soul, Be Still

My favorite new song writers/performers are Keith and Kristyn Getty from Ireland. Their songs are full of rich, Biblical lyrics. Much like hymns of old, their new hymns have verses that are each packed with meaning. This particular song (different from their hymns) has meant a lot to me today. You can access an audio sample of it here. We don't know what lies ahead in life, but we can still be assured of God's presence with us and we can rest in Him no matter the circumstances.

Still, my soul, be still and do not fear though winds of change may rage tomorrow.
God is at your side; no longer dread the fires of unexpected sorrow.

God, You are my God, and I will trust in You and not be shaken.
Lord of peace, renew a steadfast spirit within me to rest in You alone.

Still, my soul, be still; do not be moved by lesser lights and fleeting shadows.
Hold onto His ways, with shield of faith against temptation's flaming arrows.

Still, my soul, be still; do not forsake the truth you learned in the beginning.
Wait upon the Lord, and hope will rise as stars appear when day is dimming.


  1. Oh how true! We need to continually remind ourselves to just be STILL and KNOW that HE is God!! What a blessing to REST in that knowledge and TRUST HIM!!

    Blessings to you Teresa!
    In Him,

  2. Camille,

    I'm sure you know what it means to trust in God with the trials you have been through. Sometimes I just have to remind myself to run to Him with every fear and problem, instead of dealing with it in my own way.

    May He give you extra joy today!

  3. Just stopping by to let you know I've been here a few times to "check up" on you! Trust all is well? And Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    In His Love,

  4. Camille,

    Thanks!! Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? We enjoyed some time out of town, so we missed our traditional meal with my brother's and sister's families, but we had great fun as a family using some free tickets to Disney World that we had earned. With college break, we had to go during Thanksgiving. It was worth it!
