You need only be still… + Giveaway

A few years ago, I had a verse hit me between the eyes.

Exodus 14:14- “The Lord our God will fight for you, you need only be still.”

The Lord YOUR GOD will FIGHT for you, in place of you, and all He asks in return is that we remain still & trust Him.

For those of you who have been a part of my spiritual journey, or others who have been reading this blog for a while, you will undoubtedly know that trust is something I have struggled with.

I want to do it so, so badly.

I want to relinquish control, cease the striving, and just lean back, lean in, and trust. I want nothing more.

And then my nature kicks in. That stubborn, “I know better”, and “I can do it on my own” mentality rears its ugly head.

So many times I have run to Him and He knows the words before they ever escape my lips, “God, you Know me. You made me. Hear my heart.”

Exodus 14:14 has become something of a life verse for me, a heart cry for the way I want to love. The way I choose to live. Because it is a choice. A daily one.

And it’s the verse that this blog, A Still Magnolia, is based on.

So, in effort to keep it ever in the forefront of my heart & mind, I commissioned Valerie Weiners, a very talented artist to create for me a custom hand-lettered piece to display one of my favorite pieces of scripture.


It sits on a side table in Katie & I’s apartment.

A daily reminder.

A stake in the ground.



And perhaps, you’d like one too?

I thought you might!

    I love the Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”! Always something I need to remember! But really, what verse don’t I like. 🙂
