Do you long for authentic conversations about God with other believers?
Do you yearn for encouragement as a woman of God?
Do you find yourself running in circles with your busy schedule?
Me, too. I would answer yes to all of those questions. And I know so many women in our culture, in our world, would too.
That is where these videos enter in.
I was given the opportunity to review a video by Lisa Chan called Be Still. Somehow, since Francis Chan is one of my favorite authors, I knew this would be good. (If you remember, Crazy Love is one of my all-time favorite books.)
Just the title of this video makes my heart still. Every time I think about the words “quiet,” “be still,” “meditate,” I wonder how I get more of these things in my life. How can I have more quiet? And when there is quiet, how can I still my heart before the Lord and really hear from Him?
Lisa Chan is a very down-to-earth, genuine speaker. As I listened to her talking about being a busy mom and wife while trying to find quiet moments with God, I found myself nodding in agreement many times. Her encouragement comes from a place of understanding.
Not only does she encourage you to get alone with God, she asks the tough questions…like, what are you doing instead of spending time with God right now? Or what happens when you do get alone with God and there is quiet? What will you do? What will you say? Will you hear His voice?
There are 3 videos in this series, called True Beauty Films. This particular video that I watched was 23 minutes long. These videos would be excellent to do with a small group of friends, a sunday school class at church, or just for your own devotion time. You can download a free reflection guide that has questions in it for discussion or reflection.
I would love to hear your thoughts, not only on this video, but on the topic! How do you find that time to be with God? How do you let God fill you up when you are worn out? How do you listen for His voice in the craziness of your daily life?
