Stillness.

Peace.

Rest.

It all seems so far away.

Unattainable.

The world around me is noisy. Media constantly pumps information in my face. Socials announce the panic, insecurity and unrest people are experiencing.

Inside it is noisy too. The volume has been turned up on my insecurities. Confusion, frustration, anxiety, distress and fatigue bundle together in my stomach. I pile up distractions so that I don’t have to feel the knot, but that only works for a short while.

More information crashes over me and my own heart becomes more agitated and uncertain.

I know that in You, Lord, there is stillness. Your voice is louder than the noise of the world. The peace I find in you quiets my soul.

Father bring peace so that I can hear your voice.

Let me rest secure in the comfort of your arms.

Bring stillness into my heart. Shelter me from the storm.

Stillness.

Peace.

Rest.

It is attainable when I look to You.

You are the God of Peace.
