Rhiannon reminds us to take time to be still and know that God is who He says He is.

This week Rhiannon Wells shares with us, read what she has to say below:

What does your week look like?

I’m currently in my 4th year of studying Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast! This year I’m mostly on placement in the Ulster Hospital, alongside having some online learning and lectures. I live at home in Donaghadee with my family and our dog, Taffy, and in a week I probably drink an immeasurable amount of tea… Most recently I’ve started helping with one of the online youth groups in church and our Life Group has started back up which I’m excited about!

What are you thankful for? 

I’m thankful for so many things. Despite the uncertainties, anxieties and frustrations of recent times it’s definitely proven to be a period of personal reflection on how much I have to be grateful for. I’m surrounded by supportive, caring and wonderful family and friends. I know that I am loved. I have a garden and nearby places to go out on a walk to clear my head and so much more that I often take for granted. I’m also thankful for my health and having the ability to help and serve others.

What is God teaching you these days?

I always come back to Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God”. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the business and stresses of the world, without taking time to breathe or to rest. The Lord teaches me to lean on Him, to trust in Him. To ask Him for His strength and His spirit of love, joy, peace and compassion. There is so much that I don’t know and that I’ve still to learn, but I know that God is good, that He is with us, He goes before us and He knows, loves and cares about every single one of us – unconditionally. What an incredible thing that is to learn.
