An encouraging word: QUIETNESS
We live in a restless world. Try to walk down a busy street without running into someone texting, not looking. Bruce Springsteen’s lament in 1992 about “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On”) seems quaint more than 20 years later with hundreds of channels at our disposal. (And still “Nothin’ on.) Try prying an X-Box or Play Station away from a Grand Theft Auto playing teen. We’ve forgotten the Scriptural admonition that “in quietness and trust is your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). Just once today, slow down, get alone, get quiet and get with God. It will do wonders for your soul.
