“Let my meditation be pleasing to Him; As for me, I shall be glad in the Lord.”
Noise. Much of our lives today we are exposed to noise. Sometimes even if we are about to sleep we hear noises.
The noise we have in our lives are a sign that we living a fast-paced world. We are often on-the-go concerning stuff on our jobs, professional life and career. For some, resting is even an after taught focusing most on their times on their jobs. But, even the most industrious person will find his/her job-related life snap and then ask for a silent moment to regroup themselves.
Jesus Christ did find time to meditate. This peace and solitude provided Him the perfect environment to reflect and think about His ministry and to talk to His Father in heaven.
Our lives maybe fast-paced and we often see ourselves looking for quality time for reflection. We may not always find one, God invites us to take a break, make a deep breath, reflect on our lives and meditate on our spiritual matters. We may find that break times are not just for resting but also a time for God to talk to us.
On every mountain height is rest. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
