One verse I've kept close is one which I've now not an idea save perhaps Isaiah somewhere...nevertheless the (ahem) verse :-l In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength. Poetic, is it not? I love that. In a way your'e style to live is not all this or that...but God's specific about manner here: "This is your love time-out!" He cries. So, maybe it's mystery. No, I would not say that; in fact; Repentance goes with rest, and that is plain as it says you time-out and sleep by loving God enough to rest, and now everyone I know would say that rest is a kind of real salvation. Simple. We can all do that... Now also in a quietness, it is simple too, you aren't talking; you choose to listen with all your attention on God. Couple quiet with trust, there, now there is a person to trust. God is that person. Which helps you have strength for the tattle-teller kid younger than you who is always on your nerves. With this in mind, he/she will not be anymore...get ready for virtue because we're going to explode with love.
