This morning I hear wave after wave of rain as it lands on the windows, buffeted by the wind. In the quiet of the early morning, the rain is an audible presence. A few days ago the sunrise broke over the horizon in a beautiful fashion. The streaks of light and glow of the sun came forth in the stillness of the morning. God and all of that creative ability shines forth in so many of the things in nature. We can connect to God so easily in the beauty and stillness of creation. To sit alone under a tree listening to the birds sing or to sit on a rock listening to the crash of the waves can renew and refresh our soul. We can come into tune with God in these moments.
Sometimes though, we struggle with silence or the lack of noise. We turn on the radio or TV or make small talk to fill the void of sound. But if we always surround ourselves with noise, it is easy to miss God’s still, small voice. In daily prayer time, allow God a moment or two. Give Him a space to speak into your life. In your time of reading and study, do the same. God has so much to offer into the silence if we only slow down and seek out His voice. Allow His voice to speak to you. It may be to reveal something, to give you guidance, or simply to say, ‘I love you, my child.”
