mere rushing on

One's action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: 
not to be mere rushing on
D. H. Lawrence

help me settle, Lord
into the peace of Your embrace
surrendered to Your command
where anxiety flees
seeking the stillness with Sandy

Great, great wisdom. I think D.H.Lawrence understood grace. Rushing in the flesh might look impressive and it appeals so much to our old religious self, but allowing our Lord Jesus to live His life in and through us is the way grace operates! We only need to abide in Him in perfect peace.

Another pile of "Amen". You always do that with that great mix of photo and Word and words.

Thanks, Karin.

"...surrendered to your command where anxiety flees" Still working on that - It's the total surrender part that's so difficult sometimes, when the world feels like a bull in a china closet that is SO HARD to ignore - but then, the light flashes through all the broken pieces and becomes truly beautiful... Thank you for this. Janet

HI Firefly! I love that quote. It's so true! How many times have I rushed in where I should not have gone? Spending time with him is the best way to quiet down and be led.

Love it!
