Turmoil's of Thought

The illusion of the outer world drives me to seclusion as the silent searching of my soul commands my attention. I have a need to hear the One whose presence speaks without words.

The need arises to quiet myself, like Elijah, so that I can hear the silent voice behind the raging storms, those thoughts that rise to give discussion to worries far beyond my own reach and capacity.

Struggling with that incessant inner dialogue I realize it is time for a “holy stop”. I need to hear Him deep within this thirsty soul of mine. He gives a sabbatical rest within my inner world away from the scurrying thoughts that attempt to capture and enslave.

The heavy storms on Mount Sinai gave witness to Elijah of the mighty power of the Living God. Yet it was the sudden, fearsome silence that broke open his heart of stone. And it is in the seclusion of my inner world His silent presence speaks into the hidden corners of my heart.

I no longer can hide from the piercing silence that, like a sword, cuts asunder the strands of thought that have ensnared my mind. Disconcertingly God turns my world upside down once again.

Not with striking signs or spectacular wonders yet gently, softly and until now, unperceived, He has moved within the noise and vehemence of my soul’s chatter. After the fire, His still small voice shouts into the silence of my soul.

The wind and the storm have passed. The rocks have been broken into pieces. A shifting has taken place and the wind has blown away the debris. The fire has consumed all that is considered dross. God is about to do something new. It is time now to listen.


"And He said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice," (1 Kings 19:11, 12)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I'm new here, but have a couple thoughts. You captured me from the first sentence. Then "spoke" to my own heart of some of the very thoughts I've entertained - but held to in a silence - waiting to find expression. Thank you. (I shall be 'watching' you - lol). God Bless Rev L.
