Silent season- A woman after God’s heart

Silent season- A woman after God’s heart

I’m always saying that God is always speaking and we just need to pay attention. But sometimes we’re faced with silent seasons where we feel God isn’t speaking. . This week I’ve taken time out and I went to visit my sister and theres been a calmness I’ve been experiencing. I’ve been having such a peaceful time just resting. Taking naps during the day out in the lawn and passing out randomly. I usually would feel so guilty but I chose to embrace this moment and just go with it.
I’ve also been on medication for anxiety so I’m pretty much numb and my mood is stabilized. Being out in nature has brought a stillness that made me search for God. I’ve been praying and asking him to say something because i just haven’t heard from him. But as I continued to search I found that the voice of God is in the wind, in the trees swishing and the birds chirping. In the silence is where we find God’s presence and our hearts connect to him. At first I felt like I may be neglecting my relationship with God but it turns out I’ve been yearning for him. God may not be sending me a weighty word right now but he is all around me. He’s surrounding me. He’s here with me. I know what it means now to stop and just be still in the presence of the Lord. I’m living that out now.
“For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For my hope is from Him.”
Psalms 62:5 AMP
“Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.”
Psalms 46:10 TPT
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
Exodus 14:14 NIV
Stillness shows that you trust God and that you’ve surrendend everything to him. Not give up but place your complete trust in him. And that’s the lesson for this week. We often search for the chaos and the noise when we should be searching for the silent quiet places. We should not fill our emptiness with the things of this world but let God come in and fill the emptiness with peace and love. I’ve never felt more appreciative of life and the little things like my baby niece smiling. I fall in love with her smile each time and I’m reminded of how I should be as a child of God. Life is so precious. Be still and know that he is God.
