“Music is the silence between the notes.” Claude DeBussy
We have forgotten the silence. We have forgotten what it is, what is natural and true. We have forgotten to listen for the silence. We have forgotten to pause, take rests, take breaths. Instead we hold our breath in fear, unable to release our hold on even the air God gives us, not trusting more is there waiting in the silence, in the stillness of the clear.
God is this breath of silence. God is the pause between the breaths. God is the rest. The rest we are to take comfort in, and immerse ourselves within.
We have forgotten God exists and that we exist within Him, within the vastness of this eternal presence He is. What He is, we are. But we have forgotten. We have forgotten to pause and pray, to have moments of silence throughout our day. So we don’t hear the music that plays in our ears, the sounds of God, the Silence that says “I am here. Walk not in fear, for I am with you eternally. Call on Me. Be still and know, I am. Take rest. Take a deep breath. Breath into Me. Breath into all the fullness of Life you can be. I am here. Hear clear, the Silence that is.”
