Words of Wellness: Be still 

“Be still and know that I am God.”Psalm 46:10 KJV 

Dr. Kim Koranda Grigg
GCU School Counseling Program Chair 

During times of crisis and sorrow, we often question our identity and purpose. In Psalm 46:10, we’re reminded of the significance of being still in times of uncertainty.

However, this Scripture isn’t merely a discharge to sit quietly and do nothing. On the contrary, it is a call to action – to show up and hold fast to faith. 

When someone is experiencing deep grief, we might feel helpless to do anything meaningful in the moment. Truth be told, the initial stages of grief hold a brokenness that is vulnerable to hurried rebuilding.

Grief involves more than stages; it’s a complicated process that takes time and care. So how can we provide comfort?

For those experiencing deep grief, a simple gesture of being present offers a sense of serenity and a reminder of the Lord’s enduring love. By just sitting quietly with someone, offering a hand, shedding a tear or saying a prayer, your compassion does make a difference.

During this stillness, a genuine respect with love invites the Lord’s presence in the delicate healing process. 

As we struggle with trying to make sense of senseless acts and search for answers, perhaps we can find some purpose in a willingness to just show up, be still and trust that the Lord will do the rest.

Bible Verse

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
