Pirouettes in Life

Have you ever had those times when you feel like everything is pulling at you and you are doing your best to stay above water so to speak? I am definitely in one of those times. Everything from homeschool, my parenting skills, relationships, my new business of selling children's books, this hurricane, is all pulling at me and ahhhhhh each in different directions! I am so incredibly off balance.

So what do I do? Psalm 46:10  says, "Be still and know that I am God." Be still. These two simple words are so calming and bring me back to the foundation. Be still. Do nothing. Let go. Just stop and know that He is in control. He is my steady. Psalm 105 says, "Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always."Just like a ballerina must find and keep a focal point, I need to stay focused on Him as I do pirouettes in the dance called life.

Be still. Know. Look.


  1. Melody, I feel like that today with school, kids, housework and being a wife etc, I could go on forever. I had a moment at school to where my eyes just filled up with tears, but then I remained still and prayed. I relized I got to put all my faith in him, but as we all know that is a challenge. I ask if you please pray for me to reach my goals, I feel everytime i know your praying for me it all comes around!

    1. I know you can do this girl! I will definitely pray for you.
