Quiet Restfulness

Posted by Jerry White on Mar 14, 2016

“The quiet restfulness of God’s unhurried presence acts as a solace to fretful and anxious hearts; moreover, in such an atmosphere the human spirit is made sensitive to the movements of the Divine Spirit, and confidence that He will not fail is engendered. It is those who thus wait, who find strength to continue waiting for His moment which assuredly will come.”

The Quest for Serenity (Thomas Pitch in a marginal note by Ruth Bell Graham)

G. H Morling, 41


Let us then labour for an inward stillness,

An inward stillness and an inward healing,

That perfect silence where the lips and heart are still,

And we no longer entertain our own imperfect

Thought and vain opinions,

But God above speaks in us,

And we wait in singleness of heart,

That we may know His will,

And in the silence of our spirit

That we may do His will,

And do that only…

Henry W. Longfellow


For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. Psalms 62:5

Truly, in our busy distracting and disturbing world we must labor for an inward stillness.
