One Thing

Posted: September 11, 2017

Do you ever just get sick of the noise?  I do.  I'm sure someday I'll be an old lady in a quiet house and the silence will drive me nuts.  But in this season, I long for quiet, calm, peaceful, undistracted, serene, tranquil....ahhhhh....well, apparently David the Psalmist read my mind:

"I’m asking God for one thing,
    only one thing:
To live with Him in his house
    my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate His beauty;
    I’ll study at His feet.
That’s the only quiet, secure place
    in a noisy world,
The perfect getaway,
    far from the buzz of traffic."  (Psalm 27:4-5 MSG)

And he's so right:  the *only* most quiet and secure place is in the presence of Jesus....ahhhhh.....

Jesus, I long for the peace and security that only You can bring.  I want to remember You every day, talk with You every day, be with You every day, and hear from You every day.  Thank You that You are never too busy for me; may I never be too busy for You!  Amen.
