This morning I am finding that these few moments of simple quiet are likely to be the most valuable part of my day. Sitting in silence sounds like a simple thing, but it's never easy for me. I feel idle and useless when I sit without, at the least, a to-do list formulating in my mind. Being quiet, calm and still seems to go against my very nature.
This morning I sit in silence, because I ususally hit the ground running. I busily go about my day as if I can control the outcome with my worrying, my planning and my doing. And it has worn me out.
This morning I sit in silence, becase this is where my Father reminds me that He is the one with the plan. He is the one with the answers. He is the one who knows my path. He is the one that walks every step beside me.
So while the bed still sits unmade, the bathroom is still dirty and the dishes are still in the sink, I will sit in silence and I will meet with my Father.
The Lord is in His holy temple.
Let all the earth be silent before Him.
