Growing in Silence

    In the present age we currently live in, silence is missing from our days. We are always getting distracted and surrounding our selves with noise. Computers, laptops, Ipads, smartphones ect are all taking us away from the much needed silence in our lives.

     Nature is silent. No plant  will make a sound while growing. It grows in pure silence with a great amount of time. Nature doesn't need flashing signs, and bells to get attention to grow-it needs time and patience. It needs no attention to grow- it becomes beautiful when it is done. A flower starts as a seed, and bursts through the seed to reach life. Then it makes it way to the sun, which offers it strength and food. Humans to, grow in silence. The beginning is silent, and when we enter into the reality of the world it is complete noise, noise, noise.  Everything grows in silence.

     In a similar way, our relationship with God must grow in silence. It will not grow, by going on the streets and shouting the good things you do, or when you fast. It grows in the silence with the heavenly father. In Prayer. We grow in Silence with God... No noise needed. It is in the silence that we can expect to find God. God is always found when we come fourth to him-in the silent prayer of our heart. Like a flower, we to are and will continue to grow beautiful in the silence of that growth. In constant connection with God, we will grow to show our natural, beautiful colors. These colors are the colors that attract people to look at what they can have with God. The beauty of creation, grown in silence.

     May we be like the flower, and grow in silence with God, through constant prayer.

"But when you pray, go to your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you."
Matthew 6:6
