Silence Is Golden

Is it just me, or does the world seem noisier than ever before?

There are so many things tugging to get our attention. We are distracted by all the noise. Everyone is saying “Look at me”. We throw up status updates on social media and even on blogs hoping to be heard. In most cases, we are simply adding to the noise and chaos.

In the midst of it all, we complain. “God’s not speaking to me.”

Do you think this is really true?

Or do you think it’s possible that we are doing a terrible job listening?

Maybe it’s time we turn off some of the noise.

Maybe it’s time we start being more intentional with our times of solitude.

Maybe, just maybe, we need to pursue silence. In pursuing silence, we might just start hearing God’s voice which has been speaking all along.

I don’t know about you, but I want to listen to the Voice that really matters. I want to pursue a silence that is truly golden – a silence filled with God’s voice.

What are you doing to hear the voice of God in your life? Is your life full of noise? What is one thing you can do this week to remove the noise?
