The Sound of Silence

Listen.  Do you hear it?  The sound of silence.  It does have a sound you know.  The absence of noise.  It kind of rings in your ears after a days worth of loud.  Do you long to hear God?  Do you need to hear His voice?  How do you hear Him?  When your day begins with noise and ends with the news.  Everything in between moving, clicking, whirring, honking and yelling and clamoring for your attention.

Today I had opportunity to rest, in quiet, and wait for His voice.  It had to be a choice.  Like Jesus, God's own Son, choosing to remove Himself to a solitary place to hear the father.  While the storm (literally) raged outside, I sat in the calmness, until the ringing stopped, and the clear voice of the Spirit soothed my soul.

Thank you Father for the sound of silence.

Yes, it's in silence that we can hear that still, small voice.

Wonderful. I did silence with our Lord today and there is nothing that can compare to peace in HIM!
