Stillness Vs. Nothing

“Being still and doing nothing are two very different things.”

Being still is having confidence that God is in control of all life’s circumstances.

Doing nothing is the depression of circumstances outside of your control.

Being still is walking on from hardship knowing you have grown.

Doing nothing is letting your hardships cripple and overwhelm you.

Being still is listening as wisdom guides you on when to speak and when to keep silent.

Doing nothing is deafness to any council .

Stillness is a time of healing and recovery.

Nothing is a time of emptiness and worry.

Stillness is a conscious decision to wait.

Nothing is a missed opportunity to act.

Stillness moves on.

Nothing stands still.

Oh by the way, the quote at the beginning was a Jackie Chan quote. It was from the 2010 Karate Kid.
