Like a Weaned Child with its Mother

My hope and prayer for the last couple of days has been to attain this measure of calm and quiet in my soul:

   A SONG OF ASCENTS. OF DAVID.

  O LORD, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me. 
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me. 

  O Israel, hope in the LORD
from this time forth and forevermore.
(Psalm 131, ESV)

Repentance

Be Perfect, as Your Heavenly Father is Perfect
