It is quiet – not the eerie kind of quiet that sends shivers down the spine.
No, rather it is the enveloping quiet wrapping itself like a hug around the soul. It is the silence that caresses my heart to soften and awaken to His presence anew. I find it now in the early morning dark while the busy world slumbers. It is in this quiet hush that I hear His voice whisper.
I am learning not to fight the internal alarm clock that rouses me at 3am but instead embrace this quiet place. Open my eyes, my heart and my soul to the One whose whispers have too long been drowned out in the whir of life.
Be still, be calm, see, and understand I am the True God. Psalm 46:10 Voice
I sit here emptying myself of all the noise that has invaded my heart. It roars as water rushing through a crumbling dam. There is no way to stop it now – the force is too great and it spews me hollow. And yet, in this pouring out I am not left vacant but available…
Stillness has to do with seeing…the opening our eyes to another dimension, to the mystery of God that lies all about us. M. Mayne
…available to Him.
