Silence may pose a challenge to me because I am so used to doing all of the talking. Silence gives me room to pause, to breathe, and to listen. Jesus always took time to ascend a mountain for silence to listen to his Father, so, too, are we summoned to do the same.
My God, silence is the ultimate prayer,
the conduit for which you communicate,
the vessel through which you meet me at my heart.
Silence is the meditation that I travel inward to find you
at the center of the labyrinth of my soul.
Silence my mind. Stop all distractions.
Redirect my focus to you so that I may actively listen.
Take 10 minutes today to be silent and to listen. What do you feel God is trying to communicate to you? Journal what you hear from God.
