Sometimes we just need to stop talking.
Sometimes we need to quiet the buzz of electronic gadgets around us.
Sometimes we need to turn off on the iPod.
Sometimes we need to embrace silence.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Then we can hear what me missed in the din of our day.
We hear birds outside. We hear our own stories coming to mind. We hear God’s whisper.
Be still and know that I am God.
I think I’ll take a walk today. How about you? How do you find quiet?
