I haven’t done a Christian inspiration post in forever, but last night I had the biggest talk with God and all I kept hearing over and over was Psalm 46:10: Be still, and know that I am God.
I had originally planned on writing to-do lists, revising my planner, and organizing every tiny thing that crossed my mind (force of habit when I’m nervous or don’t know what’s supposed to come next in life!) but, instead, I ended up just laying on my living room floor talking to God – and it was the best thing ever :)
We post a lot about science on the blog – which is super important! – but I never wanna lose sight of the fact that God is what makes all of this incredible holistic health stuff work. I truly believe that all of the information we cover on Prayers and Apples can seriously help people lead happier, healthier lives – but at the end of the day, it’s never going to really work (we’re talking inner-peace/I’m-happy-with-my-life-regardless-of-my-circumstances level work) without God.
Focusing on organizing or improving our lives without thinking about God is like analyzing every tiny detail in a book but completely forgetting about the plot. (Not sure if that’s going to make sense to anyone but me?) But that’s the best way I could think to describe it :)
So I just wanted to share today’s post to say: If you’re nervous or scared, sad or unhealthy, confused about what comes next or overwhelmed by where you currently are… try listening to Psalm 46:10: Be still, and know that I am God. It helped me feel a lot better last night – and served as a much needed reminder about the importance of trust and simply spending time with God ♥
…Since it’s been so long since my last inspiration post, I thought I’d share some extra pictures :) Hope you enjoy!
