"Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is." -Amy Carmichael.
It's sooo easy to be hurried and pressed and not quite so easy to refuse to let it get to you. Life is busy. Most days looks a little more like this...
than this...
But I'm so thankful that I can have stillness in my heart when all the earth could be spinning around me. (isn't it, anyway? like literally? umm, hello world. welcome to life.) There are decisions to be made and questions to be answered, when the desire to know God's will for something NOW and not wait is banging on my mind's door.
There is a beautiful stillness that comes only with Jesus' perfect peace that surpasses all logic and reason. Though we may have earthquakes and aftershocks daily in our lives, we can rest in Him if we only trust Him and fix our hearts on Him alone. The one who carries our burdens for us and loves us as His children.
It's a great day.
