Even though we’re not supposed to be texting or talking on the phone while driving, we’ve always got our Garmins to keep us connected.
All our kids have smart phones, laptops and televisions in their rooms. Let’s not forget video games.
We are a turned on society every waking hour of the day.
But it is actually the ‘Ultimate Turn-off that would be the biggest ‘Turn- on’ if you would give it a chance.
You know why?
God talks to us in the space between our thoughts. But when you keep your space so occupied with external things, your internal life is what suffers.
Silence for many is a scary thing and so we keep our minds rushing from one thing to another not realizing that what we are missing is the peace and contentment of our spiritual connection.
Communion with God will be challenging until you learn to quiet the negative self-talk running rampant in your head.
If you can’t hear guidance until your head is quiet and…. you feel like you can’t get quiet without some guidance….. it can feel like a catch 22.
Replacing your ‘head noise’ with a positive thought is a great first step. Find an affirmation that feels good to you. Anytime you notice negative thoughts, calmly repeat your affirmation. Repeat it several times if necessary.
It’s all worth the effort. Soon you will be listening to the sound of peace.
