Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Silence.

The early morning hours are my favorite part of the day. The quiet and stillness found there are a balm to my soul bringing inspiration for the day ahead as I read.

Silence has been defined as the “absence of any sound or noise; stillness” ( My Bible dictionary adds this insight: “to cause to cease criticism” (from the NLT Study Bible).

In a world where everyone has something to say and shares their words via social media, the silence of the morning is the time of day I so appreciate.

For it is in the silence that God speaks.

“It is the same with my word. I send it out and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” (Isaiah 55:2, NLT)

God’s Word is an accomplishing word, spoken and delivered for a purpose. It brings life and produces fruit in the life of the believer.

“But the Lord is in his holy Temple. Let all the earth be silent before him.”
(Habakkuk 2:20, NLT)

Our souls need time to bask in the silence for God’s still small voice to be heard. May our words be few and His heard.

Silence – it has a sound all its own.
It has the sound of God’s voice.
