Sometimes in an attempt to provide comfort for your family, the stillness of your spirit may feel disturbed.
It could be that you have started your work for the day without seeking God’s guidance in order to know the direction of God’s purpose in your life for that day. So many things seem to crowd in one’s day that these quiet moments are often neglected.
Something else you must learn to guard against is planning so much in one day that you over-fatigue yourself in your daily work because then you cannot give yourself freely to the needs of others and to the work you are to do.
If you can be pleasant and speak quietly, it will make your family happier than anything else you can do for them. It is a fact that a person’s own selfish will gets in the way of the duties sometimes.
Let your inner being be renewed by a conversation with God at this moment.
