So many times we are referred to, and it is true, as human beings.
Lately though, I have found myself existing as a “human DOING.”
Doing this, doing that, planning for this, finishing up that, looking at this, finding that…just always moving and/or doing.

Even in my quiet time with God this morning I found myself struggling to bring my mind in and concentrate on Him. I’m normally able to just zero right in with Him and get my refreshing for the day. I found myself thinking of what I needed to do as I came out of my time with Him and really having to pull myself back in. I just wanted quiet. For about the last week, and especially the last few days, I have been looking for quietness. Stillness. Nothingness. No conversation. No plans. No list. No needs. No wants….Just longing for a place within myself of still and quiet.
The phone rings, and I glance at it as though it is a literal enemy. “I don’t wanna talk to anybody” I say to myself. “I don’t want any reports, whether they are good, bad, mediocre or otherwise. I’m feeling really good on the inside. I have a spirit of great expectation, but I still just want Quiet, Nothing, Stillness.

I know that as the day progresses I’ll have to come out of my little cocoon I’ve created in the morning to bring a balance to myself, but if I could just have it a little longer, and a little more often.

What do you do to bring your balance back with the world seems too loud around you?

    Amen. We felt the same way last week. Unlike you we actually silenced our cell phone. Lol. Sometimes we need that silence time. So we can hear clearly from God, also so He may give us REST for our mind, body, and spirit. Great post. God Bless.

    P.S. We are still in our “coccon”. I guess we will come out later this week. Lol.

    P.S. P.S. (If there is such as thing :).) We also pray for God to clear our minds when too much is going on up there.

    Thanks for your words. As for my phone, my cell was silent and always is that early in the morning. The phone I was referring to was my home phone, and I surely didn’t expect it to be ringing that early in the morning. I should have known it would happen though since I was trying to get in the presence of My Father. I’m glad that I know when to answer and when not to, that was a not to time. šŸ™‚ Thanks again.

    Loved this post and I can totally relate because I have felt this way myself. Believe it or not I get my quiet when I’m out on my daily walk, that’s the only time, I do not have to pick up the phone, read emails, do nothing but listen to Joyce Meyer or Joel Osteen and receive God’s Word. Some mornings I listen to nothing at all and just stare upward at the blue sky and give thanks! We have become a nation of Human Doings and we need to take time out and center ourselves back to the creator! Beautiful post!

      I use to get my quiet time during my walk too, but these days it’s so hot out that I can’t go out to walk until the fall. You’re right though, we’ve become a nation of Human Doings. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
