"We are commanded to stop (literally)...
rest, relax, let go, and make time for Him.
The scene is one of stillness and quietness,
listening and waiting before Him.
Such foreign business in these busy times!
Nevertheless, knowing God deeply and intimately
requires such discipline.
Silence is indispensable
if we hope to add depth to our spiritual life."
- Chuck Swindoll
