Blessed Quietness

_DSC0023

There’s always something waiting to be done. Routine things. They never seem to end. And then, sometimes, you face urgent situations. Demands you weren’t prepared for.

“Lord, I need this quiet moment with you. Really.”

“I need to draw on your resources. Your patience. Your wisdom. Your strength. Flood me with your peace.”

And now go confidently into the hours ahead. Experience our Lord’s compassion…and share it. Allow yourself to be filled with his joy…and pass it on. Draw from the deep wells of his patience and understanding…and give them freely to those you serve in his name.

Lord, make my heart quiet, ready to serve you.
