Call to Quiet

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” — Jesus

These words are so common that sometimes I may not really hear them. Today they were fresh. I heard them.

When I peer inside myself, I find I am troubled, almost unconsciously, by things that happen or may happen. Anxieties about health, or relationships, or “things” (that won’t last).

Jesus’ words call me to quiet. To stop for a moment. To tune out the incessant noise of the world — and of my own inner thoughts.
