Come To The Quiet

At the first of the year our church family takes time to pause, fast, pray and listen. I am doing the same. I’m going off of social media, taking a break from the blog and taking more time to listen, pray, write and reflect. If it’s been a while since you’ve done the same I would invite you to join me. Every time you say you will and don’t, you diminish your ability to ever do it all.

I took a sabbatical in the summer of last year and these principles, though always valuable to me, became so much more potent. I had so much more clarity, attention, rich thought and emotional fortitude because of my time away from the noise.  There were areas of my life God worked on in me that needed attention but had gone unaddressed because I had not been available.  It wasn’t that God was unwilling to help me before.  I simply had not slowed down and quieted myself enough to allow Him the opportunity to do a thorough job.  Perhaps He wants to do the same for you?

Come to the quiet. It’s something you have to choose, even fight for. You’ll be glad you did. See you in a few weeks! (Click Here To Read ‘Do You Trust God Enough To Rest?’)

From the Bible

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul… – Psalm 131:1-2a
