In Quietness and Trust

March 9, 2020

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!

Speak Lord in the Stillness

November 21, 2010

I was thinking of quietness and trust this morning and found the hymn below. The words are beautiful!

Lord Jesus, quiet our hearts to wait expectantly for Your lead
Your words are life and do not return void
Touch our hearts
Touch our souls
To follow You


Speak, Lord, in the Stillness

Speak, Lord, in the stillness,
While I wait on Thee;
Hushed my heart to listen
In expectancy.

Speak, O blessed Master,
In this quiet hour,
Let me see Thy face Lord,
Feel Thy touch of power.

For the words Thou speakest,
“They are life” indeed;
Living Bread from heaven,
Now my spirit feed!

All to Thee is yielded,
I am not my own;
Blissful glad surrender,
I am Thine alone.

Fill me with the knowledge
Of Thy glorious will;
All Thine own good pleasure
In my life fulfill.
