Be still

and feel the song

that God sings in your heart,

a song of praise to our God.

They went and found a colt tied to a gate outside on the street, and they untied it. Some people standing around said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” They told them just what Jesus said, and they left them alone.

Mark 11:4-6

This was wacky! These two disciples walk into a village and take a colt. When they’re caught, they say the words that Jesus told them to say, and the crowd leaves them alone.

This part of the story beckons us to ask: Do I have that kind of courage? When I hear God clearly, do I dare to do what God asks?

Life isn't always easy to understand. We don't always see where we are going or understand what God wants from us. In those times when it is clear and we do understand, may we trust God to lead.

God, help me to trust that you will give me the words to say. Give me the courage to do what you ask. Amen.

Go out and sing the song that God has put in your heart.
