in the stillness

My days have been hurried, trying to keep pace with the demands of my world.

Exhausted and full of cares, I stumble -- stumble into Your arms.  

And like the clear, quiet calmness after a gentle snowfall, so is my heart after I still myself before You. 

In the stillness I find rest, and know that You, LORD, are in control. 

"Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is." ~Amy Carmichael 

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” ~Psalm 46:10
