Taking Time to Listen

If you know me in real life, you know I talk. A lot. In fact, even if you just know me as a blogger, you've probably suspected as much. I have ideas and I share them. I learn something new, and I just have to tell it. I talk and I write and I share and then do it all again.

  However, there are some circumstances in my life lately that are encouraging me to be quiet. To take time to listen with my mouth closed. I'm not taking a vow to silence or anything like that. If you meet up with me in real life, you might find me as chatty as ever.

However, I want God to be able to talk to me. I want Him to show me what's up next for this blog. I want Him to tell me what I need to change in my life and what I need to continue. I think of it as a kind of "spring cleaning" for my soul.

I know I just took a week-long break, but I need a little more time. More time to sit at His feet. More time to drink in His words to me. More time to just be with Him.

So, I will be quiet for awhile. With all the other voices in the blogosphere, I'm sure you won't mind. I'll be back. In the meantime, if when you sit before God He brings me to your mind, go ahead and mention me. And I'll break the silence long enough to do the same for you.


  1. Amen! I echo your feelings. As of late, I am feeling more pulled toward immersing myself in the Word than anything. I have almost a dozen blog drafts that I can't seem to touch because I am feeling compelled to spend more time with the Lord than writing about Him.

  2. Krista, understand what I was trying to say. Blessings to you and your blog.
