Psalms Meditation – July 15

“My Soul Waits in Silence”

Read Psalm 62:1-7

Silence sinks a shaft to bedrock. It is the soul’s means for descending through the gravel of rebellion and doubt to the solid, quiet reality of God’s word.

PRAYER: “Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake to guide the future as He has the past. Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake all; now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.” Amen.
(Katherina von Schlegel, “Be Still, My Soul,” translated by Jane L. Borthwick)
