Be still · Preparing · Quiet

preparing…

A day spent preparing… to get quiet… preparing for a silent retreat…

How do you prepare to get quiet with Him…? what do I take…? what do I pack…?

It’s really not much more than two days away… but how do I prepare…? that’s what I’m considering this morning…

For one thing… I’ll be leaving this behind… so you prepare for quiet too…

There will be no words here tomorrow… and as I write in this moment… that seems hard… to not post or publish in advance… even just a verse or few words for you to read tomorrow…

But I hear Him press… Put it down…

So tomorrow… no words…

There is a little angst in this preparing… wondering if He’ll speak something special… or will it just be a time away… or am I too dull of ear to hear…

Letting go of expectations… there’s one thing needed to prepare…

Maybe it’s more about what I leave behind… than what I take with me…

I encourage you to find some time to get quiet with Him… fifteen… twenty… minutes… maybe even an hour… just to sit… listen… let Him speak…

What do you need to leave behind…? in order to get quiet before Him…? how would you prepare to be still…?

“Be still and know that I am God. …”

Psalm 46:10 ESV
