Is it even possible to sit in silence today? I mean come on as I was typing this my phone rang twice, I got serval e-mails, and I even checked Facebook! What exactly is silence?
The psalmist approaches God and ask Him to search Him and to know his heart, test me and know my concerns. I really don’t know if I could pray that prayer. God already knows my heart and thoughts, but to ask Him…to give Him permission, I just not sure. But what if it was the other way around. What if we took time to get to know Him, if we simply just took a moment to be quite. Today let me encourage you to be thankful for silence and to be thankful that God knows your heart.
11/4 – Thank God for Silence. Due to the fast pace of our lives these days, most of us have forgotten the gifts of silence and reflection. Take a few minutes sometime today, find a quiet spot and think of things you are grateful for.
