Perpetual Quietness

Humility is said to be perpetual quietness of heart. It means that I do my part and trust God to take care of the rest. Although I may not know how my help will come, I can remain serene. All I have to do is to ask my Higher Power for healing. ~ Family Groups, Al-Anon. Courage to Change—One Day at a Time in Al‑Anon II (Kindle Locations 1850-1852).

Humility is said to be perpetual quietness of the heart.
I settle for those things I need to accept because
it’s beyond my power to change, for those
I’ve realized I can change after God’s given me
the needed power, and listen for instructions
on those I can’t sort out.
I strive keep hands off God’s part
without questioning, second-guessing or coveting.
I sit and wait for insight, for marching orders,
for discovering the serendipities that wait for me.
I wait in quietness that heals, that transforms.
