Blessed Quietness

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength."  Isaiah 30:15

Father God thank you for the salvation you have given me through your Son, Jesus Christ.  Help me to rest in the quietness of your grace and to place all my trust in You for without you I can do nothing.  Thank you Father God for your grace and mercy that are new to me each morning, Amen...

Blessed Quietness
by Manie P. Ferguson, 1897

Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the Trusting heart His home.

Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
What assurance in my soul!
On the storm sea, He speaks peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll!
