I can’t pinpoint the exact moment when it happened, but I’ve been overwhelmed by the constant noise our culture produces. So, I’ve done my part to quiet some of that noise in my head and also in my home. There has been this amazing peace in our lives the last few months, and I can feel my body loosen up from the constant state of tension that this noise has produced. I can tell that this peace is taking up residence in my heart…because just this weekend I actually thought it would be nice to listen to music (and that’s a big deal because I haven’t intentionally listened to music since Christmas).

I love music. It’s really nice to feel at home again in my heart.

“The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
