For God alone my soul waits in silence;… Psalm 62:1a
Mourning Doves’ cooing
Recalling my mother’s delight
Stillness, silence allows thoughts to surface
The gifts of life have a chance to permeate
Silence often begins with seeing and hearing the world around me
When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Revelation 8:1
Feeling the tenderness of His Love upon my heart
Words of His Word soak in,
drawing meaning of what He means
His silence teaches me that I am to be silent
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
The LORD’s silence is not of this world.
The world demands noise, talk, loudness, busy-ness,
too much going IN
with nothing of substance able to go OUT
too much world going IN
not enough of Him going IN
and nothing of Him going OUT
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; … Ecclesiastes 3:7b
Time, moments with Him in silence …
necessary … in relationship.
Go with Him to pray
Be with Him to learn
Look at Him to reflect
Quietly, still, in silence
and I slow down whether the world around me does or not.
But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before Him. Habakkuk 2:20
Father God, Your beauty surrounds me in the stillness, in the white. The gentle touch, as of an angel’s wing, glides across my face, reminding me that You are here. Father, I sense Your love in the silence, Your peace in the stillness. How I love the breath of air in the silent, in this cold air. It gives me hope, calm. My breath is Your breath for You first breathed in me to give me life. You first loved me to teach me love. You are my first Love. In this quiet, I sense You and know that You are near. I draw near to You for Your Presence is so real, so lovely this day. Your touch tenderly caresses my face, yet is silent. Oh, how I love You, my LORD. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
