Silence is such a hard thing to come by. Our world is loud and busy and I’ve become accustomed to it. For better or worse, I’d rather fill the space around me with words and music and talking than be alone with my thoughts some days.

God’s voice is loud enough to make the rocks cry out, if He chooses. But isn’t better for us if we make room so He doesn’t have to speak through burning bushes and lightning strikes? Silence can be a very good thing, if we let it.

Here’s my January 2019 devotional for Devotions from the Heart about the topic of silence.

Do you have a daily practice of silence? Or is this something you’d like to cultivate but, like me, don’t always know how? Leave a comment or use the contact form to let me know what you think. I’d love to start a conversation about it!

I’ve got a new devotional up today at the God is Love blog. This has been a year of emotional struggle for me. I love to think, like the song Laura Story wrote, that sometimes our blessings come through the struggles, through the raindrops and through the tears.

For better or worse, this broken world we live in is constructed so that only through tearing down a muscle, can it be built up stronger. 

I would love to hear from you if you’ve had a struggle that has ended up being a blessing to you. Drop me a line at my contact page or comment on this post. I’d love to start a conversation.

Have a beautiful day!
