my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a child quieted at its mother’s
like a child that is quieted is my soul.
O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forevermore.”
- Psalm 131, RSV
A beautiful reminder to start a week that is foreseen to be stressful.
Lord, I beg for the grace to be calm, quiet and comforted. Allow me to occupy myself with all that is truly important. May I desire nothing more than to hope in you today. Amen.
