It seems of late that I’m always going somewhere – AZ, CA, NC, PA etc & it feels like I’m in perpetual motion. This is good because I get to share about the daily & supernatural presence of the Holy Spirit. On the other side, I find myself desiring that peace from being still & knowing that God is. With all of the traveling & stresses of work, home, schedules, family etc, we would be wise to learn about carrying peace on the inside. In Job 20:20 it says, “Because he knew no quiet within him, he does not retain anything he desires.”
Here are some ideas about carrying some quiet in our heads wherever we go:
- remember to give your anxieties to God
turn to God as a habit & not just in overwhelm mode
- let those unexpected cancelled events give you some pause space – don’t fill your schedule to the gills
- life has seasons, ebb & flow & we would be wise to go with the flow
- it helps me, on occasion, to sit in my car for a few minutes, with no phone or music & just be still
Carry some quiet in your heart wherever you go!
