Scared of Silence

What do you listen to on the way to work?  Do you worry when things get quiet?  If you are a parent then you should be a little concerned when things get quiet.  I think we have become a nation that is afraid of the silence.  We are afraid to just sit and collect our thoughts.  We always have to be doing something, whether it is productive or not.

When was the last time you took a quiet walk?  Everyone I see these days have ear buds in when their walking or looking at a cell phone.  One of my favorite verses when I think of multitasking and everything that is competing for our attentions is Psalm 46:10.

Psalm 46:10

10Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Be still and know that I am God

I challenge you today to be still and be silent and let God speak to you!
