"My heart is not proud, O Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have stilled and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, both now and forevermore", Psalm 131, NIV. What these words say to me is that I no longer need great things in my life nor do I need God to give me anything. I am content to just rest in His presence.
That little child inside of me
Had always felt alone,
Forced by life to carry a weight
Too burdensome for a tot.
Never allowed the carefree play
That youngsters ought to have,
The secret I resolved to keep
Hung heavy in my center.
Until the day that Jesus' strength
Came down and hugged me tight.
He rocked me back and forth that day
And loved my tears away.
He stilled and quieted my soul within
As I gazed upon His face.
