Small talk? Years ago in all the “hubbub” that surrounded dinnertime and even the hours following dinner (those were filled with homework help and reading books to the little ones), my wife and I had precious little time to ourselves to just talk. Are you looking for quiet time? Spiritually we need it. Shutting out life’s busyness is another important key to spiritual health.
Think about it. When we draw aside in a quiet place to pray, we need to block out our busy world and open our hearts to the Father. Our darkened world of disappointments and trials will then be illuminated.
God’s Word tells us: “It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him.” (Lamentations 3:27-28).
We will enter into communion with God we sense His presence and provision for us. Seeking solitude, in that sense, is a discipline, one that must be cultivated and practiced. Search for that quiet time to get a worthwhile conversation going; so it is with our prayers and God. Try finding a quiet place to talk with Him and you might find that a little small talk can reap big dividends.
“Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You that you are a gracious, loving God. Help me not to be influenced by the busyness of life, but rather help me to keep the eyes of my heart on You, knowing that Your plans and purposes are perfect. every morning. In Jesus name, Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
