Quietness

I have always enjoyed the early morning. Those moments when the world is sleep and only nature is speaking out. There is a peace in the house. There is a reflective ness that rests on my soul. It is in our silences that we come to a knowing ness. When the world and obligations don’t parade themselves first, it is a time of open spirit.

The silencing of the spirit brings about great truths. It opens the spirit to the grand visions of God. It brings about a peace and understanding about the situations of life. It allows us the steps to move forward.

Quietness allows us to get humble. We see in our busyness we don’t have all the answers. We see that we cannot operate independently of our Creator. We become like children again, with the ability to regain our awe and joy at the simple things, like a newborn leaf that reflects the hope of life in its pale, delicate color.

Quietness forces us to see ourselves and those around us with unmatched clarity. We can see ourselves and others through the eyes of Jesus. Compassion can rise up in the heart, while pride takes a dive. Quietness allows for examination. It allows us to see the stuff that we mask to others. It opens the door to change…only if we walk through it.

In the quietness of my life I have learn much and grown more. I have been the invited guest of our Lord, as I shut my mouth and my own mind and meditate on Him and His word. I have viewed myself – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I gain more of the life lessons necessary to navigate this life. Getting quiet and listening…listening for that small, sure voice. “My sheep hear My voice.”

Get quiet and hear Him. He is waiting. He doesn’t talk loud, He won’t talk while you’re talking, and He won’t yell in crowds. He can and will wait you out because time is on His side.
