I’m pretty bad at silence.
I’m pretty bad at just sitting and listening.
But God calls us to rest, to come to Him in a quiet place.

Tomorrow I have very little to do. My goal is to listen in the silence, to listen after I ask God a question, to hear what God has to say.
Silence can be deafening. It can be difficult in this iphone era.
