Weaned from the Bottle and Pacifier

A Guest Post by Karen Smith on Psalm 131

This is a guest post by Karen Smith. Karen and her husband Jim are members of First Baptist Boynton Beach. She is a great encourager in the weekly Bible Study that I teach. She also has a dog named Fancy Pants. I’m thrilled to be able to share this meditation on the Scriptures.


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.

–Psalm 131:1-2
