Our house has lots of activity, translate that to mean noise. Given that my kids are 5, 6 & 8 and that they already enjoy listening to Isabell’s hello kitty stereo at LOUD levels, I’m fairly apprehensive about the approaching teen years. >:/
This all makes me think about Job 20:20, “”Because he knew no quiet within him, He does not retain anything he desires.”
There’s alot to be said about maintaining a quiet place in your heart – a place that is still, quiet & without anxiety, stress, etc. Our lives are full of busy-ness, demands, pressures, uncertainties & loud things – that’s a given. But cultivating a quiet place in your heart is not a given, although from what Job says, this is very important in relation to our desires.
The quiet in my heart has become increasingly important in my life . I find that as I keep & even protect that still place in my heart, I find that Jesus infuses more places in my daily living.
Keep a little quiet in your heart.
