I had the privileged of previewing the first devotional video in the True Beauty series, “Be Still“. The video is shot similar to the NOOMA videos, as it’s told with a one person story. In “Be Still” it’s spoken in the point of view of two women, with two different stories and how they have learned to Be Still with God. One of the women speaking is Lisa Chan, she shares her personal story of needing to spend time with God and how it happened for her.
I needed this video. The words, “Be Still” and “spending time with God” have come up a lot recently in my life. I know I’m busy and I’m pretty sure you all can say the same. But do we take the time to be with God? We need food, water, exercise, air… and we NEED time with God to truly survive.
Do I/you spend time with God? I mean real time, not just church or Bible studies but one on one time? “Being Still means, you and God alone, just the two of you.” I am working really hard for this alone time to become a daily habit. Just like exercise, it’s not easy to take that time for yourself but once you start and stay dedicated it just because the way you live.
I really loved this video and I look forward to the rest that come in the series. There is also a downloadable “reflection” guide that comes with this video. I really can see working with an accountability partner through these videos and encouraging each other along.
