Message from Bruce Consier, Athletic Director

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in all the earth.”
-Psalm 46:10

A few weeks ago as I was pondering what else I had to get done in the busyness of my life, I found this saying:
“One word of caution, when you are overly busy your spirit gets empty..
Always giving out and that leads to downfalls. So, stay connected to HIM in every way you can.”

I have since made a poster of this saying and put it up on my wall, bulletin board and read it daily.
These past few years, I have been absolutely non-stop. I believe God has used many different things to get my attention.

Sometimes in life, God has to get our attention to remind us that HE is God. It may be an injury, sickness or just about anything that HE will use to have us slow down, or maybe for us to stop and wait on HIM.

Some of my best times in the past few months has been in our administration meeting as we sit quietly during prayer time. In that quiet time I slow myself down and think about how God is in control.

So if in your busyness of life - take a moment- turn off the lights, radio, TV and just sit quietly. In that time God will fill our spirit.

  1. Bruce,

    I have the plaque: "Be still, and know that I am God" in my office. Thanks for the added reminder to slow down and think how God is in control.
    Have a blessed day.
