Stillness is not a place. You won’t be able to find it on a map, you can’t find it merely by looking. In fact, it has not much to do with external factors at all. You could travel to the quietest beach, the most heavenly park, and not be still. Stillness is a state of the heart, mind and spirit. Jesus had so much stillness in him that he could sleep while the boat thrashed and thrived wildly amidst the storm all around him. And we can carry this same stillness with us-no matter how tumultuous our circumstance-when this same Lord lives in us by his Spirit, and we choose to trust in Him with all our hearts.
