Wednesday Whisper ~ Quiet Times

As my spouse sleeps soundly, I tiptoe through the bedroom cautiously opening and closing drawers, brushing my teeth in our walk-in closet (not spitting there), and slipping into the restroom to change clothes hoping the door won’t squeak, only to accidentally tap the switch for the noisy fan instead of the light. Oops! It takes so much effort to be quiet!

Stillness is a rare occurrence these days, so having a quiet time with the Lord requires effort and planning. With the busyness of everyday life, it does not happen without purposeful determination.

Even Jesus had the habit of getting up before sunrise and going to a solitary place to listen to and talk with His Father. David wrote in Psalms 37:7a, “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.” (NIV) Being still before the Lord allows us to worship and give thanks to the Almighty, to bask in His love and peace, to share our burdens, seek His wisdom, and listen for counsel.

May we set aside a time and place and not miss the most important meeting of our day.  He will be there. Will we?

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
