Years ago, an unexpected friendship came my way. Despite an age difference of four decades, we made an immediate soul connection.
Regardless of the situation . . .
My friend advised me: “Proceed in quietness and confidence.”
The advice never changed. The two words, “quietness and confidence,” have continued to speak to me.
Before we went our separate ways, I was told the response of quietness and confidence would be my strength with whoever and in whatever I faced.
I can say for sure . . . these two words are essential in living the best life . . . all the time.

When I’m in a hurry to get at it, there’s a tendency to rush into a situation . . . as if, it’s a task on the to-do-list.
Hurrying is not the best long term plan for living the best life (this is an ongoing lesson for me).
I’ve learned there is wisdom in giving time and space to the things that matter, which requires slowing down from the high-speed chase of living. Sifting and sorting through the pieces with God and trusted advisors produces clarity.
And . . . I now understand . . .
It’s an ongoing process to stay in the space of quietness and confidence.
So . . . it’s my turn to give the same advice . . .
Go in quietness and confidence. It will be your strength—Kerrie
Finally–Here’s the God-Word of this advice:
One more thing–It’s imperative we demonstrate our advice to the next generation . . . look who’s one of the next . . .
