Finding Peace in the Silence

There is a peace in silence. Have you been there? To the place where there is no noise. Not that easy these days is it? I took a web free vacation this past weekend and didn’t post a thing. Yep, time for some R & R with no internet.   I have to say, I miss those days.  I mean, I love you all, and I love reading your posts as you pour out your hearts – that I missed. But do you remember the days before Google, before Smartphones, and before the Internet?

I don’t think our kids get to experience that.  They talk on the phone, message, snap-chat, instagram, FB, etc – everything is online whether you want it there or not.  And I have heard so many horror stories about how people are finding out about personal family issues online. I know, it happened to me too.

How can we value privacy when we don’t have any?

How can we hear God if we don’t listen?be still

Here is an excerpt from Beliefnet along with my interpretation…

 

Six Benefits of Silence

1. Soul Refreshing

We cannot pour water into a cup that won’t sit still.

 

2. Soul Restoration

We  cannot strip away the old and put on the new if you won’t stop to get dressed.

 

3.Soul Healing

We cannot expect a wound to heal if you won’t bring it to the surface and let the Holy Spirit take it away.

 

silence4. Soul Listening

We cannot hear if we don’t stop talking.

 

5.  Soul Quieting

We cannot receive from God if we are too busy with our hands doing what we want.

 

6. Soul Ravishing

We cannot enter that intimate place with God and let him pour His love on us if we won’t sit still.
