Noisy · Quiet · Seeking

seeking quiet…

After a full day… I find myself seeking quiet…

a little stillness… but it’s hard to find…

mind cluttered…

to do’s… undone…

hearing the hearts of those I heard today… one seeking discernment… and another distressed for a loved one…

then there’s my own series of mishaps… making me laugh at myself… and wondering where my mind is really at…

well… it’s busily… and desperately… seeking quiet… inner… and… outer…

I embrace the words of the psalmist… and pray them as mine…

But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

Psalm 131:2 ESV

Lord… enable me to calm myself in the knowledge of Your constant presence… quiet… my soul… even as my world… and mind… are noisy… distracted… cluttered…
