Silence

Monday, February 25th, 2013

I’ve been borrowing a car while mine gets repaired. As I drove around I kept feeling like something just didn’t seem right. A few miles down the road and I realized my sports talk radio wasn’t talking to me. I pushed the power button and the receiver read “Error.” So, I’ve been driving around in silence.

Along the road I’ve been reminded of how precious silence is. That time in the car has been filled with “blah, blah, blah” and the noise quiets other voices; some good and some bad. These past few days I’ve had conversations with God, myself and others. I’ve reflected, repented and rejoiced.

Don’t forget to practice silence for yourself. It is a great gift, Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that Iam God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in teh earth.” In your silence and stillness of a moving car, make the most of it and turn it off for a little while.
