Silence is Golden

No comments:

Sitting by the roadside eating a sandwich, in a remote town, you can hear the birds chirp and the distant sound of children playing. Holidays are bliss. Leaving the house and just travelling, you put aside the busyness of life, and enter a new frame of mind. The peacefulness of the surroundings allows you to reflect on circumstances quite often pushed to the back of the mind. The silence affords you the opportunity to hear God; and to quietly thank Jesus for his blessings in your life.

Silence is golden. Not that you can't hear God in a loud worship service, or that you can't hear God while in a busy supermarket. Though the time of serenity shoves all the distractions to the side, and you find yourself, like Elijah sitting by the mountain hearing the voice of God.

My encouragement is for you today. Find a moment to seperate yourself from the expectations of the world around you. Find a brief time apart to recharge the batteries of your mind and soul, and allow the Holy Spirit to speak once again into your life.

From Alice Springs, in central Australia. God bless.
