Finding God in silence

We need to find God and God cannot be found in noise and restlessness.  God is the friend of silence.  See how nature – trees and flowers and grass – grow in silence.  See the stars, the moon and the sun,how they move in silence.  The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-97)

Finding silence takes practice, especially in the over-stimilated world in which we live.  Take time today to silence your words…your mind…your body.  Let your heart be still so your can feel God make your heart move.

Practice every day, extending the time a bit more each day.  Empty and still yourself a little more each day, and you will begin to see the blessing of silence.  God will is there waiting for you.

May you see many glimpses of God today!

Peace,

Lil
