Quiet and Waiting

Stillness

Let all that I am
wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in Him.
Psalm 62:5

We are in the way both of duty and comfort, when our souls wait upon God; when we cheerfully give up ourselves, and all our affairs, to his will and wisdom; when we leave ourselves to all the ways of his providence, and patiently expect the event, with full satisfaction in his goodness. – Matthew Henry

  1. Inner peace isn't an easy thing for many to achieve, but the calm that it provides is our greatest gift.

    Thank you for always sharing your hope with us.

    This photo takes my breath away. I am always sketching trees. They speak to me in so many ways.
