Awaken Your True Self


Bask in the peace of silence sometime today.


Acts 16:13-14

On the sabbath we went outside the city gate along the river where we thought there would be a place of prayer. We sat and spoke with the women who had gathered there. One of them, a woman named Lydia…listened, and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what Paul was saying.


How often do you seek out “a place of prayer”…a tranquil place that allows you to physically step outside of the distractions of life?

It could be a place in nature…or it could be as easy as going to an empty room, closing the door and sitting in silence.

The next step would be to listen.

Then let go of the constant flow of thoughts that relentlessly bombard your mind.

Let go of personal agendas…simply let go.

Be silent…open your heart…and pay attention to the inner voice.

Just “be”.

Find a special place to simply be today.

Make it a daily practice…then see how your life changes for the better.
