Silence

June 9, 2008 at 2:12 am (Uncategorized) ()

We talked about silence and resting in God at church tonight. This is something that I’m horrible at.

 

I think silence scares me.

 

Or maybe I just know how to be quiet and listen.

 

I’m committing myself to having at least five minutes of silence a day for the next week. This is going to be a time where all I do is listen.

 

No lists. No agenda’s. Just quality time with my creator.

 

I’d love some accountability with this. Does anyone want to do this challenge with me?

    Count me in. This is tough. Even when I want to be quiet before God, my personal thoughts fill up and race towards what God wants to say to me therefore somehow nullifying what He is actually saying. I can’t quite get free of my personal agenda even when I try! Looking forward to this endeavor.

    Okay, I went out for a quick 15 minute walk of solitude around Centennial Park today. When I went back in to my office and to the kitchen to get some lunch, I found that my lunch stash had been thrown out by the janitorial staff over the weekend. Now c’mon, was I being told that ‘Man doesn’t live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God’.

    OK…so I tried the five minute thing before bed last night….not a good idea when you are sitting in the bed in your pj’s…I woke up about 20 minutes later…today I am going to try it in a different setting 🙂

    Count me in! Even when I try to sit quietly I can’t help but think about a million other things.
