Great Power and Beauty Await You


This weekend, great power and beauty await you if you’re willing to stop and be still. I don’t know about you, but the past few weeks, my life has been pretty hectic with lots of work, high school graduation parties and family birthdays. I come from a large family, so between Krista’s family and my family, it seems like we’re going to a birthday party every other week. Now, don’t misunderstand me. I love my work with The Grove, working with artists, writing and film producing…and birthday parties! But everyday, there is a larger life calling out to me. It’s the invitation of God to stop and be still.

When was the last time you slowed down to soak in the beauty all around you? To really be still? It’s essential to creating a beautiful life. Read on…

The amazing photo you see was taken in Post Falls, Idaho. That’s the Spokane river and just at the far end of the river, there is a dam where the water crashes down in a thunderous one-hundred foot waterfall. You see the beautiful pink sky there? Oh my… I had the most incredible experience there earlier this year.

Sunset. Quiet river. Stillness. The power of a roaring waterfall in the distance.

The power of a beautiful stillness.

What is your favorite place to go to? Where is your heart renewed and restored?

Great power and beauty do await you. It’s the invitation. An offer from God to come away and rest in Him.

If only for a few minutes, fight for a sacred time of beauty, quiet and stillness this weekend.

Out of that time will flow true power.

Time is our most precious resource. We all get the same 24 hours and we get to choose how we fill it.

Accept the invitation to stop and be still. When we’re quiet, beautiful things will emerge.

Question: Where is your heart renewed and restored? What is your favorite place to be quiet?
