quiet.

it's been a while since i posted anything...well with a bunch of content. things sprinkled here and there. but no real bulk.

it's just been a long couple of months. moving is exhausting. quitting and pursuing a dream career is exciting and terrifying all at once. trying to decorate and remember to feed the new dog is a lot.

things have been crazy lately.

but i think...i really hope and pray, that it's all settling down.

my heart is in a million places right now. things have been happening (and not happening) that have brought me through a whirl wind of emotions.

this morning i sat quietly with my coffee and bible and thought of just that.
being quiet.

i of course then ran through my list of "to-do's" for the day.
the human brain.

i flipped through my bible searching for passages with the word quiet in them.
i found a couple.

"make it your goal to live a quiet life..." 1 thessalonians 4:11
"...so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity." 1 timothy 2:2
"clothe yourselves instead with beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirt, which is so precious to God." 1 peter 3:4

quiet.
quiet.
quiet.

i think my mouth and mind have just been so busy lately that i've forgotten what that words means.
my day is filled with social media, the computer, the tv and my cell phone that i've forgotten what it means to just be quiet.

to get before God and listen.
throughout the whole day and not just in the morning.

so that's what i'm trying.

there's a lot going on right now in my life. good and things that are hard. anyone else with me on this one?

and i just need a break.

from the busy. from the noise.

a moment to be quiet and listen to God.
and so i shall.

Quiet is good. I'm not good at quiet but I do know my need for it.

Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot is on my nightstand. I think you should pick it up! We're in a similar place :)
