Meditating on Psalm 4:4

In your anger do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.
Psalm 4:4














Reading this today led me to three thoughts:

1) Reacting and responding from anger does not bring about the righteous life I seek to live.

2) Searching the heart is not a morbid introspection...it is examining my alignment with Christ's will.

3) Silence leads to listening, which in turn allows God's voice to be heard more clearly.

  1. Silence is a space, yes. For listening. For being...

  2. "search your hearts and be silent" WOW! That's a good word for a family-strained holiday season coming up. :)
    I am enjoying my trip to Belize via your other blog, and loving the tidbits of joyous inspiration on this one! Thanks for visiting me!
