The discipline of silence…

Of the speaking of words there is no end. The air is filled with the cacophony of human voices. We freely offer our observations, our opinions, and our feelings. It is no different with many followers of Jesus. We are eager to shout, scream and, sometimes, whisper into the ear of God. This frantic verbal activity is a sign of our inner turmoil and anxiety. This tumultuous anxiety is echoed by our inability to turn off our televisions, radios, iPods, and telephones. If we will stop for a moment, we will hear heaven say, “Peace, my child, peace.” There is a needed discipline in our world: the discipline of silence. – Ron Friesen
