In Quietness and Trust

In repentance and rest is your salvation
In quietness and trust is your strength
But you were not willing ….  –Isaiah 30:15

The Lord longs to be gracious you
He is good, abundant in mercy, ready to forgive
and restore unbroken companionship.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and
grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. –Psalm 51:12

There is sweet rest – in quiet confident trust, in knowing that the Lord is merciful and ready to forgive – that He is good to me!  Rest in Him today!
