"To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah."

How often when I'm busy, rushing around the house, I forget to just be still, and listen to God - to know that He is God.  When I start my day out with quiet time and prayer, I feel rested and refreshed, ready for whatever may happen throughout the day.  If I don't...well, it all just seems to fall apart at the seems.
 
The Harneds have a little plaque hanging in their kitchen which says, "A day that's hemmed in prayer rarely unravels".  How true that is!
 
I've found that I often need to have several quiet times throughout the day.  That doesn't mean you have to drop everything, go off by yourself, and be quiet.  You can have "quiet" time while you're doing the dishes, or doing laundry, or feeding the animals.  I'm less distracted by myself, but I can still talk to God and listen to Him, even if others are around.
 
Your quiet time with your Creator will give you the strength to bear all the little trials and troubles that pop up throughout your day with a smile and gladness in your heart.

Now, if only I could remember to practice what I preach...:)
