How absent are times of silence in our modern world. Silence has been chased into a corner where it hides from the everyday hustle and bustle of our world. From the beginning of time people who wanted to hear God’s heart have searched for the corners to seek the silence. Moses went to the mountaintop, Thoreau sat by a pond, Jesus prayed in the garden, alone.
Prayer~ Lord grant me these stolen away moments to converse with you. Let me lay my worries, thoughts, wishes, fears and all these things of the mind aside and let me tap into the stream of cool, fresh water that is you.
“For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,”
When I Know You
Bring me to times of silence, there to lay burdens down,
times to rest by the cool, stream waters, where the voice of my Lord can be found.
Lead me not into chaos when voices cry all around. Remind me to draw from the water gleamed from holy ground.
