SILENCE!

silence

“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

“The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.”                Charlotte Bronte

The idea of silence being golden is true on so many levels.  When we are in the midst of an argument and suddenly become absolutely silent, the power of that moment can be immense.  When we keep silent about something that can change the way people think, we’re withholding a great treasure. When we are silent as someone else pours out their heart to us, we are being empathetic and encouraging.  When silence becomes a tool to become more powerful, it is a waste of precious energy.

God tells us to be still and recognize that He is God. When all the prayers have already been said and there is no visible answer it’s hard to remain silent.  We feel we should step in and do something to force the issue.  Silence is a great commodity when turned over to God and His amazing power.

With each prayer, we should be assured that the prayer will be answered.  God does that all for us.  He tells us to be quiet and let Him do what He does.  That means, our input is no longer needed.  It’s now in the hands of the One who created the universe.

Lord, today remind me that you are in control of all things that occur in my life.  You’ve got my back and I am confident that you will lead me in the right direction.  Help me to place my complete trust in you and to be still.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
