Sitting in the Silence
We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thought.A.W. Tozer
40 Things to Give Up for a Better Life
#20 Constant Noise
This morning I was listening to news radio on my way to work. Something was off, like a high pitched squeal. I turned down the volume, thinking something was wrong with my car. The squeal stopped. When I raised the volume, back came the squeal. I had a choice to make, news with squeal or silence. I chose silence…for a few minutes. Then I found a podcast on my phone.
The wise thing would have been to drive in silence, to pray, to listen to the morning city sounds, to make space to think. But did I do it? No.
Why is it so hard to turn off the noise?
Do you share my addiction?
What would happen if we sat in silence?
