I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep last night and I started to listen to the silence around me. And suddenly, I began to hear the gentle, sweet, song of nighttime. The clock beat out it's steady tick-tock, my husband's breathing turned to a slow, steady rhythm as he drifted off and the rain rapped a lazy pattern on the window. As I was laying there listening, I started to think about that verse in the Psalms that say, "Be still, and know that I am God." Can you imagine that, the God of the Universe is asking you to just slow down and take some time to be with Him. He's calling us into a deeper, closer walk with Him. To truly know His heart and who He is. So, slow down and listen. What is God whispering into your ear?
"Be still and know that I am God."
"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" ~Mother Teresa
