One reason we can hardly bear to remain silent
is that it makes us feel so helpless.
We are so accustomed to relying upon words
to manage and control others.
If we are silent who will take control?
God will take control;
but we will never let Him take control
until we trust Him.
Silence is intimately related to trust.
~Richard Foster, “The Discipline of Silence” in Celebration of Discipline.
Welcome to Still Saturday where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and words. We’d love for you to join us. Get the details above, grab your favorite button, and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
