quietness rules

i love isaiah 30:15.
it says "...in quietness and trust shall be your strength."

quietness.
when i feel like talking.

quietness.
when i feel like defending myself.

quietness.
when i want to scream.

quietness.
when everything inside of me wants to do exactly the opposite.

what i don't realize is when i decide to actually do the opposite - talk.
i find that i do not feel stronger. i feel weaker.

so tonight.
i am finding my strength in quietness and trust.
trusting that God is ultimately in control.
trusting that HE is my shield, HE is my defense, HE is my rock.

and quietness.
so i can hear His voice.
so i will stop talking over him, and miss out on what He is trying to tell me...to teach me.
because He is trying to make me look more like Him.

i just need to be quiet.
that's where i will find my strength.


i will trust my God 
quietness and confidence will be my strength -
in rest i will be saved
so i will trust in you
and wait upon you all my days
you are gracious
you are loving 
and you will hear my cry, so i will trust.
