Follower of Jesus. Daughter in Christ. Sinner just like everyone else. Saved by unmeasurable love. My worth is in Him.
So Sit and Be Still started off as a blog for those who helped me fundraise for this month long college Christian leadership camp in Michigan. From there, it’s grown into a space where I share experiences and thoughts about my own personal faith as well as things that I’m interested in.
But what about the site name and web address?
Well the title “Sit and be still” came from me misquoting Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”. Despite the misquote, I still felt that the idea of taking my usually busy life slow and focusing more on the things and people around me was really important.
As for the “extrajesus”, it’s more of a joke from the leadership camp I went to. One of the speakers used the term “exegesis” which means “a critical explanation or interpretation of a text, especially of scripture” and of course someone made the joke of it being “extra Jesus” and it just stuck with me. I mean, I can’t speak for anyone else but I could definitely use some extra Jesus in my life.
So…yeah! This is my blog. Feel free to get in contact with me on here or on Facebook.
