I see you so busy in your ways, doing things no one else will do, making sure that everything is in order and ready. You are worried about many things because of this. But only 1 thing is truly needed. I am able to do what needs done and I long to show Myself to you in this. But in order to see Me and receive, you have to be still and take time to KNOW Me. There is great meaning in silence and stillness, that you can’t find in rushing and fretting to get things done. I feel the anxiety in your belly and the fear of failing. Come to Me and take My yoke upon you. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. You also have a need to surrender and be willing to accept My life in you and My plans for you. I want you to trust even when My plans are so different from what you expected of your life.  I want to give you rest for your soul. There is a way that seems right, but it brings pain. You can know you are on the right path by the peace you feel in your belly, for I am good and will lead you to green pastures and by the still waters I will restore your soul.

Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.
