Mug Rug Monday - Be Still (free mug rug pattern)

Forgive me for being a little late in the day for my Mug Rug Monday post, but I have just spent the last two weekends with 20,000 cheerleaders and their moms – so I have been a little frazzled. Without further ado, let’s see the free mug rug pattern for this Monday - today, I have designed a mug rug that I am calling “Be Still.”

Indulge me as I tell you a little about this design. After not having a lot of time to myself over the last couple of weeks, I needed some quiet time. I was reminded of this verse found in Psalm 46:10, which tells me to be still, and allow myself to experience God’s power and presence. 

Even if your week hasn’t been quite as crazy as mine, it is a message that we can all still use. You see, the context of this verse is one in which fits the times in which we all find ourselves, no matter what part of the world in which we live. The context of this verse is one of God’s strength, peace, and control in our present day of chaos caused by natural disasters and war.

If you will, take a moment to read the whole chapter, starting in verse 1 of the 46th Psalm. You will find the proclamation that God is our refuge, a very present help in time of trouble. The chapter continues on to talk about the presence of God through the roughest of times. To personally experience His peace and presence, we humans simply must be still. 

As you sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with your new mug rug - may you find peace in your time of stillness with God.

Until next week (or maybe sooner),
Michele Hester
