Ever been on holiday and sat either late at night or early in the morning, sitting looking out over the sea, at the calmness of the water, with just the noise of the sea lapping on the sand and the sound of a few birds or insects? If you’ve ever experienced it you will never forget it, it is so peaceful and so relaxing.
Have you rowed out into the middle of a deserted lake or loch and then just sat there looking around you taking in the scenery? Stunning isn’t it, and so tranquil.
It’s good to be able to sit and just listen to the sounds of nature around you, instead of the busyness of our everyday lives. It’s during times like these that we can focus our minds on the important things in life, and even make important decisions about our future.
During these times of quietness is also when we should spend time enjoying being in God’s presence and thanking Him for all the amazing things He does for us.
How often do you spend a few minutes in complete quietness? I must admit I don’t do it very often, maybe together we can make a promise today to spend more quiet time with God.
