Silence: The Canvas of God


I sit in silence.

I sit in silence to start my day.

I sit in silence to forget me and open to God.

I sit in silence to be filled with God’s love.

I sit in silence to be healed by God.

I sit in silence to receive Divine wisdom.

I sit in silence to learn how to love.

I sit in silence to let God pray in me.

I sit In silence to be loved by God.

I sit in silence to be transformed by God.

I sit in silence to let God refresh me.

I sit in silence because it teaches me how to live.

I sit in silence because I love God.

I sit in silence.
