This is a place of quiet rest. Isaiah 28:12, NLT
These few words remind us of a spring of cool water because of their renewing quality. The frequent use of today’s text has an invigorating effect.
Sometimes, after a busy day or even in the midst of exacting activities, stop and say these words over to yourself and note how they dissipate weariness and refresh the body, mind, and spirit.
The best method for using these words is to say them slowly, emphasizing their soft quiet melody. At the same time conceive of peace, rest, and renewal as coming to you.
~ ~ Norman Vincent Peale
Yet another piece of advice I need to take. With little time and space for quiet solitude I need to find it where I can. Often the bathroom works but that’s not even off-limits to a four-year-old. I need to seek my place of quiet rest in the midst of chaos. If Paul can find contentment in a Roman prison filled with sewage, and yes lots of noise, I can surely find quiet in my chaos.
Reflect: Where do you find your quiet rest?
