The other day I pulled up to a gas pump and as I filled my tank I watched television. At the pump because the tv screen was on the pump and turned up loud. I had no choice, I had to watch because it wily got my attention. Wow, I thought, I can’t even have a moment to myself at the gas pump!
Quiet reflective moments are becoming rare. We have to seek them out and plan for them. They rarely can happen by accident nowadays. If they do happen by accident we may panic instead of appreciate.
The Spirit tends to speak in quiet moments with a soft voice. If we don’t learn how to appreciate the silence and have to fill our space with noise constantly we may miss out on God’s communication.
