The Sweet Sounds of Silence

“When you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent”

Psalm 4:4 (NIV)

When we go to bed it can be a great opportunity to think and pray. We get so busy that when we get some free thinking time we fill it with phones, texting, Facebook, TV, ipods…God knows that all of us need ‘silent’ time. Time to think, reflect, plan and talk to Him.

My children just don’t understand why I don’t turn on the radio right when I get into the car. Or why I don’t fall asleep with the TV on in bed. Those are my much needed ‘silent’ times. Don’t get me wrong, I listen to the radio, watch TV and do all those other things listed. But I need to make sure I’ve had quiet time.


Heavenly Father, help me to find and take advantage of the ‘silent’ times You give to me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
