The prompt this week for Texture Tuesday was "quiet".
Immediately this photo I took last week of the sunlight streaming through the window
of one of the buildings of the historic Ft. Vancouver came to mind.
These words from Isaiah 30:15 came to mind as well.
Here is the entire verse.
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:“In returning and rest you shall be saved;In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” But you would not.
In some versions of the Bible it uses the word trust instead of confidence.
Quietly trusting God is something I need to do, yet, like Israel, I too often don't.
I keep voicing my opinion, saying my two cents worth, instructing, manipulating the situation,
anything but really and truly quietly trusting that God knows best and that He's well able to deal with the situations and circumstances that I face.
Even in this I am helpless and in desperate need of His help to "will and to do His good pleasure".
So I ask Him, "God, help me to quietly, confidently trust You."
