There are times when we feel like we have to fill the silence with words. We feel awkward, uncomfortable, and uncertain when it’s quiet. We don’t like to be left alone with our thoughts– they might overwhelm us– so we say words– filling the air– to keep going.
Maybe it’s best to be silent sometimes. We can let our thoughts settle- like silt on a riverbed.
God calls us to be still. Quiet, silent. Once we allow ourselves to stop, God will be able to start. Start healing us, start leading us, start teaching us.
So go be still somewhere.
God will be waiting there for you.
