 Re: why are we affraid of the silence?

How wonderful it is to sit in the Lord's presence in silence with no sin coming up in the conscience to condemn and to simply enjoy Him. How wonderful to hear His voice break the silence as He speaks to us and reassures us of His love or gives us direction for our lives. But it is also wonderful to hear Him say to us that there is an area within that is not totally His or a sin that has been committed for which He desires us to repent.

I love music and I love activity. But this morning I have spent almost an hour in His presence without any other noise. It is truly wonderful. We should begin to live a lifestyle that leaves much more time without the background noise.

 Re:

AMEN! Keith.

All of the responses on this thread are so edifying. It is so encoraging to see others enjoying the beauty of silence - the time when God speaks and are listening to Him.

All these responses are so...I am at a lost to explain it -.
God bless, one and all and may his grace be with you and give you peace...

 Re:

Well, there's a familiar name that's good to see again! Hello ginnyrose!!!

Silence is addictive. Once you're in the habit of it, you adjust to the peace which then gives your mind the chance to unwind and be calm. If I'm surrounded by noise for an extended periods of time, I find myself trying to get a few minutes away to pray and re-focus.

 Re:

Has anyone else had the topic of Silence come up in conversations lately? I have. How curious! It's opened doors to share the gospel with people. I first explain to them what I mentioned in my previous post about why so many people fear/hate silence. They seem to relate to it, which opens the door to share the gospel.

In this wild, noisy, 24/7 world we now live in, I'm seeing more people seeking a quieter, simpler life

Why that uncomfortable feeling with silence?

I am trying to find it. Everyone seems to want my time, want my presence and it's unending. There is always something that needs to be done and that too is unending. I'd like to climb into a hammock somewhere and get lost in the fabric of things and be far from the voices that are calling me away.

*sigh*
