Walking home, I was talking to God, which I hadn't done in a while, because I like being in control and having knowledge and plans, so I tend to talk to myself a lot; but here I was in a situation where there wasn't really anything I could do until I got home, and while intellectually I may sometimes question the existence of God, in praxis I really never do -- and I fully admit that I have created God in my own image (in the sense that "my" God is the kind of God I want there to be) and that I believe in God because it makes my life a lot easier to believe that there is Someone Up There whom I can hand over my problems to, and to believe that there is some grand plan and that there is Someone who cares about us/me.
Anyway, I was saying a lot of this, and going over the bit about how I'm good at talking but not so much at listening and how I don't really know how to do that meditation thing and thinking about the CAUMC evening about devotionals, and it occurred to me: "Be still, and know that I am God." Saying it and really thinking about it at the same time calmed me down immediately. I was repeating it and realizing that it's one of those sentences that's really good for emphasizing a successive word each time you say it. [Okay, maybe not the "that."]
