Turn Off the Noise


Luke 6:12

In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.

Jesus shows us the way to deep union with God. He set aside some time to withdraw from the noise of everyday life and go into isolation…or to his “inner room” as he put it (Matthew 6:6)…to pray to God. Praying is opening up the communication channel between you and your Loving Creator. It is quieting the endlessly babbling and judging mind…so we can hear God’s voice in our hearts. It is the practice of self-emptying…creating a space for God to fill. To many it would seem like a meaningless practice…like you are doing and accomplishing nothing. Paradoxically, it is a practice that will open you to the Presence of God and will utterly change your life for the better. God wants to be with you and transform you. But for that to happen…you will have to cooperate. That means actually setting aside some silent time in the presence of the Divine Presence each day. Since God is always with you…you can do this at any place and at any time. I promise you…this “doing nothing” will mean everything and bring you great peace and purpose.
