God Speaks to the Quiet Heart
by Charles R. Swindoll

A day in Your courts is 
better than a thousand outside.
Psalm 84:10

If the pace and the push, the noise and the crowds are getting to you, it’s time to stop the nonsense and find a place of solace to refresh your spirit. 

Deliberately say “no” more often. This will leave room for you to slow down, get alone, pour out your overburdened heart, and admit your desperate need for inner refreshment. 

The good news is God will hear and He will help. The bad news is this: If you wait for someone else to bring about a change, things will only deteriorate. 

All of us can testify, God does not speak to the hurried, worried mind. It takes time alone with Him and His Word before we can expect our spiritual strength to recover.
