We are surrounded by so much noise on a daily basis. Some of it is unavoidable, some of it is self-imposed. At times, it’s almost as if we’re afraid of the quiet, afraid of sitting alone with ourselves without some sort of distraction.
Lord, help us rediscover the beauty of stillness and quiet.
Remind us that sometimes when we shut out the noise
and sit with ourselves and our thoughts, we can discover great beauty.
Inspire us to go inward, and remember that silence—
and all that we can find in it—is a gift and a blessing.
Sit in silence for five minutes today and focus on your breathing.
