A long time friend of mine has begun a new project.
Now we have spoken very little, if any, about his topic.
Imagine my surprise when I began reading his words!
(Surprised, but not surprised. Our verbiage is even the same!)
If you have been here on my blog for any time at all,
you know how much value I put on having quiet time.
How much peace there is to having time to settle your heart and soul.
And how I also always delight if in some small way, I can help you to help yourself.
Even for just a moment; a little at a time.
So with Gary’s permission, I share his offerings with you now.
There is a quiet place
Far from the rapid pace
Where God can soothe my troubled mind
Those are the first words of a song that is not an original work of mine but have been on my heart a lot in recent days. I would like to suggest, my dear Psalms of Life friends, that dedicating yourself to a time of ‘stillness within’ is so valuable.
Establishing the habit for even a few minutes a day (especially at the beginning) is where the power lies. It is the ‘master key’ to a more fulfilling life.
Find a quiet place if only for a few minutes. Be silent, place your hand lightly on your heart. (Your mind focuses on where the touch is felt.) Then breathe slowly and deeply, listening to your breath while you choose to feel grateful.
Listening to your breath actually relates back to the fact that, in Hebrew, the deepest root meaning of Yahweh is ‘passionate breath.’
Practicing the simple habit of daily stillness with the Lord will transform your life. Studying and reading the Scriptures is good, but the art of practicing simple stillness is the most important foundation to build upon. Thanks for spreading these thoughts with 👍 ❤️ !
