Maybe it's the changing of seasons.
Maybe it's the shock of reality after an amazing weekend trip.
Maybe it's because my days are packed with busyness, and my nights filled with sleeplessness.
Whatever it is, quiet has fallen over my spirit.
It's a heavy quiet.
The truth is I often wear quiet this time of year; a well-worn coat of many colors.
It's in this place I've learned to keep my focus on Higher thoughts, lest my mind and heart wander.
This morning I was listening to the words of a song.... my Truth reminder for the day.
My chains are gone
I've been set free.
My God, my Savior, ransomed me.
And like a flood His mercy reigns,
Unending love. Amazing grace.
-Chris Tomlin, Amazing Grace
Some might call it a "funk". I prefer to call it quiet. Funks come and go with the changing of wind, but quiet may just be a gift.
One that I am ready to receive....
The Lord is with you,
He is mighty to save,
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love.
