I thrive in the quiet. A lot of noise overwhelms me and leaves me feeling stressed out a lot of the time. But I thrive in the quiet, and I prefer the quiet of night to the quiet of day. There’s something about the world sleeping around me, with no chance of interruption, that I find peaceful. In the still of the night I find it easier to focus in on what needs to be done be that writing, doing dishes, or folding laundry. In the quiet I find it easier to listen as well. I find it easier to listen for the voice of God, to listen for His instruction, to listen to Him tell me the next step I am supposed to take. In the quiet I find it easier to let Him fill me back up after a draining day or week or month or even year. Psalms 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.” So, I urge you to bask in the quiet times with Him and listen as He whispers all His plans for you in your ear. Be still and know that He is God!
