Do you have moments of stillness in your life?
Last night at church, we talked about solitude and silence. My small group shared how unconventional it is to seek solitude and silence. Life can be so noisy! And there is always something more to do that keeps us from just being still and unproductive with even a few moments of our time.
Then, when we do get alone with ourselves and God for a moment, the noise of our mind often becomes quite loud.
But as the teacher of our study shared, the swirly and shaken-up sense that we have upon first being still will settle, like silt in a jar full of river water. The sediment settles, and the water becomes clear.
What would a moment of stillness that leads to eventual clarity be like for you?
