THE STORY BEHIND THE SONGBy Sara Shiver


“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”  - Psalm 46:10


With a world full of chaos and complete brokenness, it can be hard to find the time to be still, let our guard down, and listen to what God has to say. In this verse, He is calling us to do just that, even in the midst of all that is going on around us. It can be very easy to lose sight of who God is by making the things of this world our top priority. It can shake our faith and prevent us from reaching our fullest potential, but when we are still and surrendered to God, we find peace even when the earth gives way.


When darkness comes, and my eyes grow dim - You know the way


It’s by Your grace, that my spirit sings - You show the way


There were many times when I walked through some really difficult situations with my family, and not knowing the outcome, I allowed anxiety and fear into my life. I didn’t have any understanding as to why someone so young and innocent, had to go through, what felt like, hell at the time. I wanted to take matters into my own hands by trying to fix what was broken. Eventually, my eyes grew dim and I lost all hope in having a “normal”, Christ-loving family. Thankfully, God placed something extraordinary within my mother - He gave me a life long best friend and someone I could rely on during a season I didn’t think would ever come to an end. She is the one example that kept me wanting more of who God is by showing me how to surrender everything unto Him. She taught me how to be still and to fully trust God.


All that we go through is for a reason; and even though we often try to take control of it, the Lord simply asks that we seek after Him by finding salvation, comfort, joy, peace, hope, and rest in all of who He is.


Be still and know, be still and know that He is here.

Be still and know, Jesus forever in control.

Be still and know, He’s Lord of all.

There is none that is like our God
