In The Silence of The Heart You Speak

You rule the oceans when their waves arise in fearful storms; You speak and they lie still. Psalm 89:9

Mother Teresa said, “In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you… souls of prayer are souls of great silence.”

~~~

God speaks in whispers.

Whispers that are barely audible—most of the time.

Whispers that you can hear only with a heart that leans in.

What do I mean by that?

A heart that leans in is a heart that is hungry for, searching for, something MORE.

It is thirsty and desperate.

It is not afraid of silence.

It is willing to be still and wait.

It is wanting to listen and listen hard.

A heart that leans in, wants more than the empty chaos and noise this world offers…

More than its own heart’s futile thoughts and opinions.

A heart that leans into the unseen world—waiting and listening for something more?

That is a heart that seeks.

That is a heart that finds God.

You rule the oceans when their waves arise in fearful storms; you speak, and they lie still.  You have cut haughty Egypt to pieces. Your enemies are scattered by your awesome power.  The heavens are yours, the world, everything—for you created them all.  You created north and south! Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon rejoice to be signed by your name as their maker!  Strong is your arm! Strong is your hand! Your right hand is lifted high in glorious strength.

Your throne is founded on two strong pillars—the one is Justice and the other Righteousness. Mercy and Truth walk before you as your attendants. Blessed are those who hear the joyful blast of the trumpet, for they shall walk in the light of your presence. They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation and in your perfect righteousness. You are their strength. What glory! Our power is based on your favor!

Psalm 89:9-17 TLB
