A Quiet Soul

“Sometimes the deepest level of trust has the appearance of doing nothing. This does not go down well with our busy souls.”

“Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall.” Naomi to Ruth, Ruth 3:18

“A quiet heart is content with what God gives. It is enough. All is grace.”

“Sometimes we get grandiose ideas for schemes we will accomplish for God. Once in a great while they are truly God’s will. Most of the time, however, His will for us is to do the humble and down-to-earth thing, something for which nobody will ever thank us.”

…quoted from Elisabeth Elliot, “Be Still My Soul”
