We live by a pond that, over the course of the year, takes on all kinds of different looks as both the seasons and weather change. This morning, it’s 24 degrees, frost is covering the ground and the water is perfectly still. This means the pond literally is a mirror beautifully reflecting the trees around it, the sky and the rising sun. The Lord says in Scripture, “Be still and know that I am God.” Just like the water, the more still we become in mind and spirit, the more clearly we will be able to see God.
