day 69 – keep a quiet heart

In thoughts on God on November 2, 2011 at 6:08 pm

elisabeth eliot wrote a book of small revelations entitled “keep a quiet heart.”

(months before realizing this book existed – i found it in the library –  i wrote a song about keeping your heart quiet!  great minds, you know :D)

.

aaanyway, i just love that.  keeping a quiet heart.

(and the book is wonderful!)

.

sometimes the best thing for me to do when i feel worried, anxious, or upset

is to keep my heart quiet –

gentle, low, and still before the Lord.

to not clamor, writhe, or logic my way out of a situation

but take a deep breath and trust Jesus.
