“Be still, and know that I am God”

— Psalm 46:10a

Sometimes I wonder why I don’t hear from God more. Is he not listening to me? Then I ask myself how often I’ve made time to truly be still. When we make up our minds to get still, we put ourselves in a position to hear.

All of our technological advances have given us more leisure time than ever before. So, why is it still so hard to find the time?

Everybody agrees. We need to spend less of our waking moments on our phones, laptops, and televisions. What do you say? Let’s quit trying to always fill the space, and, instead, carve out time for quiet.
