“Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening. Instead of being bored by the lack of action, use times of routine to seek My Face. Although this is an invisible transaction, it speaks volumes in spiritual realms. Moreover, you are richly blessed when you walk trustingly with Me through the routines of your day.” Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (reference Psalm 105:4)
Most of the time the quiet bothers me, but especially when the kids were little. They were getting into something they shouldn’t or they were napping. It didn’t happen often. I used to wake up about a hour earlier than they would so I could have some quiet time. I don’t have to do that now.
I miss the noise of little ones. I will hopefully have a grandchild one day, but for now quiet. David and I have settled into our separate rooms, and for the most part, it is wonderful. I get to have my space, and he can have his own space. Time away. But it is quiet.
I need to get back into a routine where I seek Him first. To begin my day in prayer, not just end the day in prayer.
I have been successful in maintaining some of the new routines with my health, and schedule. This should have been a priority. No negative affirmations. So…tomorrow is another day full of opportunities for success and trust in Him.
