in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength

Quietness, Blessed Quietness

OH how blessed it is to have a time of quietness! I am so thankful for these times!

Quietness is such a blessing.  I often have grandkids several times a week.  I love them dearly, but when they go home, the quietness is wonderful! 

What do you think of when you hear the word quiet?

My thoughts are peaceful, silent, still, calm, rest, relaxation, …   Daily I should quiet my heart before God and rest in the fact that I have confidence in Him and His strength.  Isn’t it nice to know that I can just Be Still and know that God is God.  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
In the midst of turmoils and trials and I can relax and leave my burdens in the hand of almighty God; He will take care of everything.


Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
Blest assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
And the billows cease to roll.
~Manie P. Ferguson

Be quiet and confident in the Lord

If only I could practice this more!  Just be still.  Let God show that HE IS GOD!  I can trust Him.  I can have confidence in Him and He will be my strength.  What joy that brings to my heart when I actually trust His Word.  Sadly, sometimes I fall into the “would not” category.  Oh that I “just would” and then what rest I could have in my soul!

For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved;

and ye would not. Isaiah 30:14

I love the words to this song?
