This verse is the perfect word picture of TRUST, (which happens to be my word for 2013).
After all, isn't trust returning to God and
resting in Him with quiet confidence that everything that concerns you is in His capable hands?
Unfortunately, I've too often done the opposite.
I've pulled away from Him instead of turning to Him.
Instead of resting I've tried to fix things, to figure and work things out, on my own.
Instead of being quiet I've hashed my problems out with anyone with a listening ear,
when I should be talking to God and leaving my problems in His hands.
I've too often, been anything but quiet and anything but confident.
I'm choosing to change that.
I'm choosing to return to Him, to draw near.
I'm choosing to rest instead of fretting and fighting and figuring things out.
I'm choosing to be quiet, to talk less and pray more.
I'm choosing to confidently trust Him.
