“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.” (Isaiah 30:15)
I spent time yesterday just being at the ocean’s edge, watching the waves come and go.
Occasionally a group of pelicans would fly silently overhead.
Lying down, I could see jet streams from time to time streak across the cloudless blue sky above me.
It was windy and cool.
Walking barefoot into the shallow water the cold water moved sparking sand past me as each wave receded back into the sea.
It was good to be quiet.
I read from the Bible and from a book on praise.
I have found that I need quietness.
Time to listen.
