There have been so many days recently that my mind just keeps spinning and I can’t seem to stop it. I get caught up in what is going on in the world right now and my thoughts take over, leaving my mind, my body, and my spirit feeling as though the spin cycle is permanently on.
Thankfully, most days that this happens, at some point, I become aware of it. When I begin to notice how crazy my thoughts are, how they are running with fear and anxiety, I remind myself that I need to take a few moments to be still. To remember who is in control, to surrender and know that what is uncertain can only be answered by faith. Faith that our Divine Father is laying out a path on our earthly journey far greater than we can even imagine. This is what quiets my soul, my spirit. This and creating. This and nature. This and expressing myself through art.
A simple moment to sit and be still. To bring out my artistic tools and get out of my head and into my creative spirit. And make something simple and beautiful. Something to remind me that all it takes is a small moment to be still and find God.
