In today’s world of electronics and social media it can be hard to disconnect. I found this to be a welcomed side effect on our western holiday trip. We went for hours, either on the road between or at each location, without cell service. At first it was a bit unnerving. The thought that you are on your own should something happen can be unsettling. And then the freedom sets in. Freedom to be still. Freedom to listen. Freedom. It was glorious!
The real test I am finding is creating my quiet place amongst the noise. Carving out my area where I can go to be still, to be quiet, to listen and hear His voice. I have taken the first steps… making it a priority and acknowledging the importance of disconnecting. Now I am working to create my space.
How bout you? Do you have your quiet space?
