SILENCE is a WAY of engaging OUR LORD in a most profound and DEEPER WAY.
THE CALL to come deeper and deeper in and unto HIM and encounter the mystery that is GOD and our MYSTICAL UNION
SILENT PRAYER opens the door into deeper intimacy and friendship:
*I have felt in recent weeks to share my from my own heart and my experience.
*There are "writings" from many mystics who have journeyed this road , but I had this sense to write and share due to the time and season we are in as the ancient paths are walked again.
*I hope my short writing encourages and opens a path for others to explore.
*It is a place I find myself in more frequently and a place that brings a deep PEACE and JOY that surpasses all understanding .
*In a time when there are many needs within families , communities , countries and nations ,
ONE may feel we must "tell" Our Lord about all these needs.
>silence may feel as a waste of time and that we have "not" achieved anything.
>however silent prayer causes us to leave all that to the ALMIGHTY.
*It is in this place of SILENCE that intimate moments are shared, leaning on the heart of God and hearing and sensing His heartbeat .
>a place of growing deeper in love and friendship.
>a place of embrace and deepening faith and trust.
>a place of great joy and peace.
>a place of growing more into His image as we give time to God to "act" and bring deep changes to our soul.
>a place where He can reveal and "entrust" one to the next Kingdom adventure or establishment...... a place where He shares HIS plans.
MEDITATE on the fact that JESUS lives in me and I in Him.
*The Word, the Son of God , with the Father and the Holy Spirit is hidden in essence and presence in the inmost part of my being.
*We bear within our heart a greater mystery than ourselves.
*Leave everything behind , own issues, desires , senses , thoughts and enter into the profound recollection of attention to God alone.
> attending, focusing and engaging on THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITHIN.
> meeting with the living God who is the center of our being.
*Silent prayer or "INTERIOR" prayer enables you to seek God , touching Him in faith and love so that you may be "SUBMERGED" in Him.
The SUMMIT of WORSHIP for me is SILENT PRAYER.
>to sit within, in STILLNESS in the PRESENCE of and with GOD.
>this is a PATH for those seeking GOD Himself and His WILL only.
>a journey for us to move from prayers to prayer , from words to silence.
>to be bonded /united in love , sitting together joined in that love that surpasses words.
> "we may prayer most when we say least" St Augustine.
> St Teresa of Avila described prayer as nothing more than close friends sharing .
Words for her, however beautifully crafted , were not necessary.
"In your prayers do not babble as the gentiles do, for they think that by using many words they will make themselves heard" (Mt 6:7-8a)
PERSEVERE to reach THIS PLACE of DEEPER STILLNESS.
*A place where I believe Our Precious Lord desires us to be.
*God is LOVE , this love pulsating on the inside of us all the time.
*Our minds can be easily distracted when we first travel down this road, many thoughts buzzing around in our heads trying to pull us back to the "outside"
*Or we are faced with some of our "demons" or fears or failings......those places where in His amazing grace The lord desires to touch and change us.
>it is only when we face and acknowledge these, that we can then go deeper and deeper into the stillness and experience our union with Him.
DO NOT RUN or BE AFRAID!!!
*Stillness needs to be practiced as we "live" in a busy world with many "demands".
HOW DO we "practice" or "persevere".
>When I awake I turn my focus to the AWARENESS that He lives within and I in Him.
>I seek Him where He is , in the depth of my being.
>I "look" at Jesus with my heart or my imagination.
>Closing ones eyes, turning off phones , computers and even turning off worship music helps us "center".
>Walking almost as a "blind man" with faith as your guiding light.
>Enter into the glorious "darkness" of silence.
>Know that He is near and within, yet "hidden" from human understanding or feeling.
>Knowing the "space" that assists you enter in ........ walking a beach or strolling in fields and mountains .... even lying in a green field for me takes me to a very depth of being with Him.
>Within our spirits internally "speak" a word the H.S has revealed to us from The Word........ even words such as I love you, I believe, I trust, You are holy.
>Act in faith , giving yourself totally to Him, trusting fully in Him and putting oneself into His hands alone, leaving all else behind.
>Love without boundaries. God is touched by our acts of love . He is totally in love.
"You are wholly beautiful , my beloved, and without blemish" Song of Songs 4:7
OUR CONSTANT PRAYER is LIVING in THE PRESENCE of GOD.
*As we journey this path by faith touching Jesus and having an interior disposition of total trust
>we will see everything from a different view or angle and color.
>it will be as seeing through the eyes of Jesus and not through our own.
*A sensitive and alert disposition is the result of our walking in awareness of our constant presence with Him.
PRAYERS that are SILENT.
* I have found that it is in and out of that place that often there is a "releasing" of a prayer, a word , a roar or a breath that is SILENT.
*Actively co-operating with Him to release His purposes and Kingdom maybe SILENT.
>In our union with Him we are carriers of His Presence wherever we go.
>He is love, life and love : we can be carriers of that atmosphere.
*I have released a "breathe" and seen a impact for The Kingdom.
*I have translocated in the spirit and being a releaser of a frequency or light.
*I have walked into a room and felt a "shift" for the sake of His Kingdom.
*I have quietly "roared": as I am in union with The Lion of Judah, the King of kings.
ALL OF THIS FOR THE SAKE OF HIS KINGDOM ALONE.
ALL IN OBEDIENCE as I co-operate with HIM.
We are living in days of accelerating REVELATION and a call to walk in THE ANCIENT PATHS
My "prayer" is that we may understand and cherish the value of SILENT prayer, and that prayer maybe SILENT.
PRAYER everyday IN SILENCE CHANGES OUR LIVES.
