dance a jig

Psalm 46, which I read at dinner, has one of my favorite lines in all of Scripture.

Verse 10
Be still and know that I am God.

What does "be still" mean?  Some would argue that it means don't fret.  But to me, it's much more than that.  

- Smile, because he's got your back.

- Smell the flowers, because he orders your days.

- Give generously, because the earth is the Lord's and everything in it.

- Dance with joy, because your journey was ordained by him.

- Enjoy the ride, because you've got a chauffeur.

- Live in the moment, because he has a plan for tomorrow.

- Live as my exuberant, ever-smiling Beth does, always ready to dance a jig, because are His.

And He is God!
