Quieting Your Heart
Welcome to the first day of Quieting Fall! Thank you so much for your comments Friday - I was encouraged that this is striking a chord in your hearts as well. I hope this is a blessing to your heart and home. Whenever I am overwhelmed and burned out, I know my heart needs attention and some re-focusing. It can be so easy to get caught up in the daily must do's that I get tunnel vision and need to step back and be reminded there is more to my purpose every day than a to-do list.
As we enter this week, I've reminded myself that quiet is not the end-all-be-all. And, it can not and must not become an idol to me. If I'm barking out orders in the name of "quieting" - hmmm, that sort of defeats the purpose!
To start us off today, I've put together a little printable for your day. Pour yourself a cup of tea, light a candle, sit on your porch, whatever is quieting to you and let's turn down the noise in our hearts and invite God's sweet quiet in.
You can also print off the verse cards and tuck them in your pocket or purse when you feel the noise and crazy start to creep in. Let the truths that God has spoken seep in deep and let us listen to His voice rather than the thousands of others calling out to us each moment.
I pray the peace of God's Word will quiet your hearts today! Sweet blessings on your day, friends.
