Be Quiet

“Thou hast created us for Thyself, and our heart is not quiet until it rests in Thee.”  -Saint Augustine

Often people think that to spend quiet time with God they read their Bibles, pray, and write in their journals.  All of this is productive, but what if quiet time literally means that you are quiet? Sometimes you can do nothing more productive than to just stop and meditate on God.  You might be surprised: listening to the voice of God is a lot easier when you are not doing all of the talking.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him… (Psalm 37:7, ESV).
