The quiet separates us from the noise of outer influences, teaching us to hear/trust the voice of God, and to know/honor our own. Additionally, the quiet is where we can find strength, refuge, presence/peace of mind, and needed restoration.
At other times the quiet strips us, leaving us void and empty. Sheer vulnerability, an essential rites of passage for those willing to forsake all…everything that we thought we knew, stripped. Such a place is one of conscious surrender, not one of hopelessness. The quiet…transitioning within God’s gracious hand of mercy, “Dying and behold, we live.” See (2 Corinthians 10:1-6)
“Be still and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10).
We are wise to engage these infused encounters from the Holy Spirit. ~Life Through The Storm
