I never thought that to be in complete silence could be so complicated but I surely was wrong. It’s has been one of the hardest things I’ve done. To put all the mess in my head in complete mute was a challenge. Getting a glimpse of that has been the best minutes of my life.
Weeks full of love, mercy, silence, and prayer taught me how simple things are.
When in prayer, be silent and let God work.
When in moments of trouble, trust in God.
When there’s success include God.
When in need, ask God for help.
It forced me to put a stop in my life, be silent, and submerge into Him.
One of the most powerful sources to have is to be with the one who is true love. Even though it’s so hard to understand in its totality, it definitely made me more aware of how profound God’s love is.
It’s where amazing things will happen… Broken hearts healed, tormented souls in peace, re-filled with mercy, grace, and love!
A few weeks back, on a family vacation, I got to see the ocean from up top and saw how breathtaking it all was. I never saw an ending to the ocean and that’s exactly the kind of love I experience in silence, deep and never ending.
Just like we don’t see an ending to the ocean that’s how God’s love is! It never ends!
I firmly believe that God loves all of us without exception. As a Catholic, I firmly can say that my church’s teachings are no different.
So, take a moment stop your world and be still. Be silent. Listen. Look at your surroundings. Help your neighbor. Enjoy the little things. Smile more. Go outside. Disconnect from social media or even phones, it’s possible. I have done it and I can’t even explain how great that feels. And love, love a lot!!!
A lot of times we try to find things to make our life easier and simpler with money, power, and attention.
But I have found something and it surely isn’t money, power, or attention, it is prayer and silence.
