The Wealth of Silence

There are times we need to retrieve to a place called ‘SILENCE’. Silence from all the well-meaning people around you, silence from the responsibilities that are knocking at your mental and emotional door, silence from the hustle and bustle of everyday needs and request from others, maybe even those you love. Silence does not have an address, a cell number, or web site; it’s located in the heart of your heart.

‘SILENCE’ is located wherever your place of tranquility is, whether it is on a walking or hiking path, in a rocking chair looking out at God’s beautiful creation, or going for a long drive that leads to nowhere in particular. But wherever your place of ‘SILENCE’ is, it is critical that you do not allow it to be stolen from you. ‘SILENCE’ can be stolen and buried by the demands of everyday life. ‘SILENCE’ is a place of peace. Every day we can see in the media how much the world is on fire with so much chaos. If you take away all the chaos that we intake its amazing how much calmer, we as people would be.

“SILENCE” is a place void of noise and full of divine presence where God can interact with us without inferences. Our Heavenly Father knows what we need better than we do. Abiding in his presence, staying in His peace brings about a sense of calmness. We are more able to concentrate and focus. It is a critical time to gain direction and perspective, and for our own mental and emotional self- care.

The most impactful ‘SILENCE’ is when it is in the presence of God. God loves to be with you no matter where you are going or where you have been. “SILENCE ‘is a mini retreat. On your mini retreat of “SILENCE” God can show you things in life that you have never thought or dreamed of, or never saw or heard before. I love the sci-fiction stories written by Gene Rodenberry. In the theme music it says, “Taking you where you have never been before.” God is very much like that, taking you were you have never been before, opening your understanding about who He is and what He wants to do in your life! God has a way of stirring our creativity, causing better productivity without all the drama. No individual can ever say God is boring company. God has answers for many things in our lives.

“Dont fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of Gods wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It is wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, Id say youll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious — the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” (Phil 4:6-9 Message Bible)
