This summer has been filled with lots of camping and being able to enjoy the great outdoors. There is a good reason that the license plates in Saskatchewan read “The land of the living skies”. I’ve spend hours looking up into the sky! I just stand in awe & wonder of a God that created all of this for my enjoyment. It’s been so good to just get away from the regular routine of our lives and spend time out doors, the silence is amazing.
Mother Teresa said “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.”
My challenge to you this week is to spend some time in silence this week…find a quiet spot and take just 15 minutes just to be silent. Something I am learning is that if I cannot hear the voice of God I am not spending enough time just listening for His voice. Do you need peace in your life? Close your eyes, turn the world off for awhile and you will be amazed and the peace that comes from listening for His voice.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this day is filled with worship for our risen Savior!
