Stillness refreshes my soul, prepares me for the deluge that will be today.
In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength. . .
and I understand exactly what He means.
Soon the day will begin
with questions and needs,
laundry and decisions,
a house to tend to,
relationships requiring attention,
e-mails and phone calls,
tasks overwhelming my to do list.
Thinking about it brings anxiety,
but right now, in this quiet moment between God and me,
I hear His gentle voice saying,
Do not fear; I will help you.
If quietness and trust is my strength, I must believe Him
and know that whatever needs to be done today
will be completed with His help.
The Quiet calms,
clears my head,
reminds me I do not press on alone,
provides motivation and courage and a will to muddle on.
Truly my God meets all my needs.
He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.
