Be still and listen


"The word listen contains the same letters
as the word silent."
- Alfred Brendel

Be still, and in the quiet moments,
listen to the voice of your heavenly Father.
His words can renew your spirit.
No one knows you and your needs like He does.
- Janet L. Weaver

"Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD."
Psalm 27:14

God, my Father, teach me to listen in silence.
Give that I let others pronounce,
and that I know to turn around my tongue a few times
before my response.
Give also that in the moments of silence
I always know how to find You
and let me hear Your Voice and understand it.
