Soak in the Silence

This Blog is updated each Tuesday.

As my Life Group watched The Truth Project this week, some interesting and wonderful discussion ensued. We discussed how Isaiah had an overwhelming encounter with God in Isaiah chapter 6. Isaiah saw the Lord on His throne as he was in the presence of seraphs declaring the His holiness . That made him realize how incredibly short he fell when compared to the glory of God.

"Woe to me!" I cried. "I am ruined! I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty."

Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, "See, this has touched your lips; your sin is taken away and your guilt is atoned for."
"Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"
Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

What if you sat in silence for 15 minutes and pictured the Lord on His throne? What if you spent 10 minutes meditating on His holiness? What if you spent 5 minutes taking your greatest weakness to God for healing?

Do something today that scares you. Allow God into the deep self-protected recesses of your being. 

A few weeks ago I sent out an email asking what made people think of rest and restoration. Just reading them made me feel at peace. I thought I would share the answers with you. Breathe them in.
