Life is busy. Sometimes it’s hard to breathe. Head spinning, I can feel the weight of the day and the days that lie ahead. I keep myself running, empty, forgetting to stop and be filled.
Noise, it brings both comfort and dread.
The silence, in many ways, it scares me. What will happen if I stop, slow down, turn off the noise? Will I hear what it is that is truly in my heart, on my mind, in my soul.
But mostly, I fear what God may say.
Is He pleased with me?
Am I doing enough?
Am I good enough?
Are His purposes being fulfilled in me?
In a world rich with chaos, silence is a welcome visitor. It comes in slowly and beckons to take it’s place beside us. It wants to remove all the stress, care and worry of the day and provide soul-searching moments for us to realign ourselves with the truth.
Silence is not the absence of something, but the presence of everything.

The whisper of a prayer.
The conception of a child.
The thought of a dream.
The life given in a breath.
I have to choose the silence, to quiet my mind and listen for the voice of the One who longs to be heard. Here, in the silence, He is speaking.
Am I listening?
