Desperately Seeking Silence
“But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him” (Habakkuk 2:20).
My time with God is priceless. The time of day sometimes varies, but usually it is in the early morning hours when our home is silent. If the weather is warm, I sit on our back deck where the view of our neighbors very old and very tall hemlock tree always seems to beckon me upwards. I imagine myself somehow perched atop the highest branch alone; but I am not alone, because he is with me. I wish for the silence to remain.
How often as parents do we admonish our children for not listening? We insist that if only they had listened, so much heartache could have been avoided, but are we listening? Do we take the time each day to consult the one who knows us best? Do we ask for his guidance with a grateful heart and an expectant attitude? Our silence before God is a gift that he longs to give us if only we would listen.
How treasured is a letter received from a faraway place from a dear loved one? Most people would go somewhere quiet and out of the way, so that they might read the letter without any distractions from the outside world. A place where we could almost imagine ourselves being in the very presence of that loved one.
That treasured letter is the Bible, and our heavenly Father is that dear loved one watching each one of us from afar. He wrote those letters to his children. He longs for us to read, and wishes for us to know that in the busyness of the world, we are never alone. He calls to us in the silence, waiting for our reply, but are we listening?
