Who are we reflecting? In our rush from place to place, with our schedule filled with all kinds of activities, it is hard to be still. Yet, stillness and silence play an important part in spirituality. For spirituality is about our awareness of the presence of God and the movement of the Holy Spirit. Without the time to be still, it is hard to be able to catch the wind, and to reflect the glory of God.
Like the still waters below, it is only when the waters are perfectly still, that the surroundings can be perfectly reflected. It takes a still heart to reflect the quiet beauty of God.
Still waters reflect the beauty of the landscape. A soul stilled in Christ reflects the beauty of God's grace.
