Quiet Your Soul

It has been a week full of the flu, worries, anxieties, lack of production and a bit of domestic chaos in the Steedly house :)  Quiet time has, admittedly, not been either a priority or even feasible most days.

Today, I wanted to get reacquainted and refocused ...because the week has left SO many things that need to be done, so many things put off, so many messes to clean up and disorder to order, I didnt know where to start and my mind was feeling muddled.

I am always amazed with how God blesses us when we look to him for that refocus. I dont say that in a prideful way ..but a reminder for myself that when I feeling the most out of sorts, he ALWAYS comes through...why dont I always just go to him in the first place, rather than my lists, my planner, my calendar, my processes?

This morning I found this ...and it brought tears to my eyes because of its relevancy to my life right now ...

"But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother,
like a weaned child is my soul within me."  Psalms 131:2

 I have weaned two babies, and beginning with another one now and I relate to the difference in a child who is looking to his mother for food at every chance he can get it, and one who is content simply being with her with no expectations of that (not NO expectations..we arent quite there yet :)
I love that idea of simply resting in God's bosom, not in a hurried demand for more or looking for what is coming next but just being "stilled and quieted" in my soul. 
My prayer for you and I today is that we will seek to "still and quiet" our souls at His breast ..just be, just rest, just allow His peace to wash over you matter what needs you bring to his lap this day.
