Pastor’s Corner

As a child, I never understood why my parents needed quiet time. I thought that everyone loved noise. Noise from a radio, me hitting the walls, pots and pans, and a multitude of other reverberating sound waves! As I have begun to mature, I have found great pleasure in silence. It really is quite amazing just how much noise we have in our lives. Our lives are filled with so much background noise that we do not hear what we need to hear at times. Find a quiet place, even if it is a closet in your home. This quiet place is a wonderful place to pray and read your Bible. I encourage you to find some quiet time alone with God. Many times we need to listen when God is speaking. We often say He isn’t speaking, but it may be that we cannot hear Him! It is hard to hear a whisper in the midst of a world full of noise.
