Lent Reflection Day 5



"Who stops wars to the ends of the earth,

breaks the bow, splinters the spear,

and burns the shields with fire;"

~ Psalm 46:10


Finding stillness in a world conditioned to noise, busyness, and words is not easy. The psalmist emphasises that we need to be still to know God. It is in stillness we come to know what our hearts long for, the Divine Presence alive in us.


We can experience with stillness and silence by purposefully not listening to our car radios or music as we drive or ride the bus or subway. These modes of transport will become mobile places of stillness where we can enter the quietness with God in the midst of the daily rush. Remind yourself that God meets you in the silence.
