“Being settled keeps us from responding to every little ripple of dissent as if it were a tidal wave. We are to be disciples, not oscillators, like a ‘reed shaken in the wind’ (Matt. 11:7). Elder Neal A. Maxwell
I love the idea of being settled. The word "settled" makes me think of peace. As I've written before, we are all, in our own ways, searching for peace.
If I am settled, I know the answer to questions before they arise. If I am settled, I know that I am not going to be tempted by alcohol. If I am tempted, I know that I am not going to be tempted to cheat or steal. If I am settled, I know who I am and what I am.
So, for today, I am grateful for the times that I am settled.
