Noise

Noise

Mar 19, 2012

All day long, and from every con­ceiv­able angle, the world speaks it’s “wis­dom” to us and tries to mold and shape us.

The noise is con­stant, some­times sub­tle and seduc­tive, other times loud and obnoxious.

But in times of quiet the truth speaks.….

“Do not deceive your­selves. If any of you think you are wise by the stan­dards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wis­dom of this world is fool­ish­ness in God’s sight. As it is writ­ten: “He catches the wise in their crafti­ness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”” 1Cor. 3:18–20

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own under­stand­ing;
in all your ways sub­mit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nour­ish­ment to your bones.” Proverbs 3:5 & 6

 

“For You (God) cre­ated my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise You because I am fear­fully and won­der­fully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hid­den from You when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were writ­ten in Your book
before one of them came to be.

How pre­cious to me are Your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!” Proverbs 139: 13–17

 

The Challenge

The chal­lenge is to slow down enough to allow the quiet times to hap­pen, and to listen!

Slow down, get out­side, look at the sky, breath deep and take in the beauty around you. And know that this was cre­ated for your enjoy­ment by some­one who loves you.

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts”!

That is my per­sonal prayer for every­one who reads this.
