Be Still & Know That I am God! (Psalm 46)

If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master's presence. And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back and place it again in Our Lord's presence, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be very well employed.       ~~ St. Francis de Sales
The LORD himself will fight for you; you have only to keep still.   Exodus 14:14
Be still and know that I am God!
                                        Psalm 46:10 (RSV)   46:11 (NAB)

St. Francis DeSales gentle approach is really the best for me. How on earth can you resist his kindly persuasion? I so love this saint -- and this quote!
