A Quiet Soul
Has been pressing on my heart hard as of lately. To have a quiet soul means being at rest in the midst of whatever situation is present. It is being okay with not having to chime in and speak something that you want people to find humorous or get attention from. A quiet soul is being okay with not being the center of attention. Not being the one people automatically see and hear. It's being the person in the background doing things for the Lord that not everyone will notice because you aren't screaming "Look at me, look at me" while you're doing it. A quiet soul is full of patience. It knows that things happen in God's timing and that you don't need to try to make anything happen before it's timing especially because even if it's what you want, it may not be what God wants for you. A quiet soul is able to listen better because it's not talking and adding to the noise that seeks our attention every day. A quiet soul is a content soul. A quiet soul seeks God and seeks God first and rests in what He offers.
I struggle with a quiet soul a lot.
I want to have my voice heard.
I want approval.
And I worry about being notice more than I do about taking a step back and trying to listen to what God wants me to do.
I want a quiet soul.
I want to find peace and rest.
And I want to watch my tongue and guard my thoughts.
Father, my Lord, I pray for a quiet soul.
I pray that you can show me and help me practice what a quiet soul is and apply it in my every day life.
I pray that I may seek you first and above all else and that my only concern will be glorifying you and following your commands.
With a quiet soul comes humility and stopping trying to elevate myself and being liked and approved,
so I pray for this as well.
My true friends and my future husband (if it's your will for me to have a husband) will love me and find me even if I am not putting myself out there and trying to elevate myself or shout out in this loud world.
They will be see me anyways and love me anyways.
Please help remind me of this day to day and let me just trust in you.
I love you Lord.
