“Teach me, and I will be quiet;
show me where I have been wrong.
I think of myself as being a quiet person, but that really only applies to an outward trait. Inside my quiet personality is a mind racing at a mile a minute, not necessarily listening to anyone or anything except my own agenda.
God wants me to quiet my mind in order for Him to be able to teach me what He wants and needs me to know. I must work on quieting my thoughts so that I'm able to receive God's will for me and that takes practice and a conscious effort to still my mind.
