Sometimes, I forget that worship can happen when we are silent. If you think about it, standing in awe would involve silence, would it not? When we are truly in awe, other than a possible whispered “oh,” do we speak? Nope. We stand amazed.
I get a little crazy sometimes. I blow through life like I’ve got a rocket strapped to my back. I even blow through my God time that way. “Hey, God. I’ve got half an hour. Here’s a little praise. And I’m sorry about this. And thanks for that. And can you help with that? Peace. I’m out.” Box checked, day started, God involved.
That’s not what He’s after though. He wants a relationship with me. And part of a relationship is sitting quietly, isn’t it? Aren’t there times with your husband, wife, best friend, child, whoever when all you do is just kind of sit together? God loves that quiet time too. And as I walked along the beach last week, He reminded me that sometimes just being mindful of Him is enough. I don’t always have to talk. In fact, when I shut my mouth, it gives Him time to get a word in edgewise. It gives Him time to lavish me with love. It gives me time to know that He is God, and He is amazing.
