I have very sensitive hearing, I can often hear some sounds that other people can’t and some noises (especially loud ones) are louder to me. As a result I really appreciate silence, because complete silence is rare for me, most of the time there’s some background noise, even if no one else can hear it. (Lights buzzing, insects, etc.) I can’t fall asleep if there’s too much noise going on, and depending on what I’m doing I may need silence to concentrate. Our world today is so noisy that we don’t take the time to stop and be silent. But it’s something we need to do, to cut out everything else and just listen for the things we can’t hear when we’re making noise, to what’s going on around us, and for the voice of God.
Day 274: Thank you Lord for silence, it’s something we tend to forget about, but it’s important to take time to stop, be silent and listen.
