A moment of silence…or many of them.
“Silence is a Blessing”
I have come to realize my silent moments are truly a blessing. I am no neurologist or psychiatrist but I picture my brain having an army of hundreds of little battle ready soldiers firing extra thoughts, facts, worries, reminders and countless of other bullets that hinder my current thought process and sometimes completely wipe out my well thought out daily plans. It’s like our brains work even more when we quit moving. Once I settle in for the evening I feel like my brain quadruples it’s work load & activity level. Do we capture these thoughts, do we try to ignore them, do I embrace the constant rambling in my head?
No. I breath. I breath slower and slower. With every breath I say
“Lord I just thank you, I thank you for the ability to dream, I thank you for the strategy you give me, I thank you for the life you have blessed me with, I thank you for my family, I thank you for all those around me that I love, I thank you for all those around me that love me, I thank you that you are working wonders each and every moment of every day in and around me. I thank you for your rest, I thank you for the reminder to “Be still and Know”. I know you desire me to live in peace and comfort. I do not have to have all of the answers or all of the plans. I will give you the time to teach me and guide me in everything I do. I thank you Lord”
After this prayer, I take in a few more breaths, capturing each thought, acknowledging that everything will align in God’s perfect timing. Breathing in again. I love the music of 432 hz. If you just search on YouTube for 432 hz music you will find plenty, choose your favorite one and download it so you can have it readily available for 2-3 times per day silent moments.
I love this revelation of the blessing of silent moments. I pray that God reveals to you areas of your life he can bring peace and rest.
