Silence just may be the key to changing your life for the better.

Mark 4:7-8

“Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it and it produced no grain. And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit. It came up and grew and yielded thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”


This passage is from Jesus’ “Parable of the Sower.”

The sower’s seeds stand for the word of God.

If the soil is bad…the seeds will not take root.

However, if the soil is well-nurtured and good…the seeds will produce fruit.

God’s word is coming to us every day in many ways, but if we are not paying attention…we won’t hear it.

And if we are not creating a receptive heart inside…that word will have no effect.

We need to stop, listen and reflect.

We have to pay attention.

We need to set aside time for silence, a time when we can actually let go of our agendas and our ego’s desires.

It’s a time when we can allow our minds’ constant chatter to cease.

It’s the only way to actually hear what the Spirit is saying to you.

It takes much practice…but over time you will notice much fruit.
