These last couple of days I have purposefully been “Silent” from the BLOG…it was hard, but I was trying to sit still and know that HE is God…not me, but HE!!!
In the process of trying to carve out that time I did the wrong thing…I filled my days with appointments, people, lunches, coffees, errands, etc…and neglected to truly be silent and listen for Him. Check out a few things that I have learned today as I finally truly was “silent”…
According to Webster’s Dictionary Online…
1 : forbearance from speech or noise:
2 : absence of sound or noise:
3 : absence of mention:
Now…check out these GREAT verses I found in the Bible about silence:
Lamentations 3:28 (The Message) – When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions: Wait for hope to appear. Don’t run from trouble. Take it full-face. The “worst” is never the worst.
Psalm 65:1 (The Message) [ A David Psalm ] Silence is praise to you, Zion-dwelling God, And also obedience. You hear the prayer in it all.
As I read through these verses I am reminded that it is good to be silent…it is good to sit still…and it is good to go off and be alone… I know that God still has a lot to teach me, but I think I finally realized today, that for me to hear Him…I need to be SILENT!
