The Quiet

Sometimes a person just needs to be bathed in it… drenched and soaked.

I close my eyes and hear it all around me… the incessant murmur of the sounds that make up my days. And while those can get truly get loud, it’s the ones in my head that are truly the loudest.

It’s the internal noises — you know the ones — that cause internal unrest or turmoil. The voices. Sometimes critical or hard. Sometimes the voice of truth through the Holy Spirit.

Yes, the clanging cymbals and noisy gongs are out there. I hear them all the time.

But soaking in His word… that brings me the quiet I need, it drowns out all the other voices, sinks them down under the sand.

Linking with Five Minute Friday today… with the word prompt “Quiet”.

    I fight those voices in my head, threatening to rob me of my quiet place. So thankful that God’s voice is louder!

  3. I know internal noises all too well. To soak in the voice of God and to be baptized by His words, new. Love this.

  4. Sinking them down into the sand. . . Beautiful. I love how you see and share His words here, Anna–and how you draw me to Him encourage me to soak in His truth. Thank you so much. Happy to be your neighbor today and meet you through Five-Minute Friday!
