Have you listened lately? There is something January whispers. It is a soft melody left behind after the song birds have flown south and the trees have quietly gone to sleep. It is a gentle refrain leading us deeper into rest. A song augmented by the softening of daylight and the slowing of the days.
These muted days of January are a gift meant to sooth and calm our eternal souls which are forced, for a while, to reside in a world bent on a feverish pitch of movement, noise and selfish ambition. January is a soothing balm which can soften a quiet part of our souls that sense the gentle movement of God’s Spirit. This Spirit is an eternal presence so ancient it is familiar to a sacred part of our being. It calls us to slow down and be at peace.
Listen as January whisper, “Be Still and know that I am.”
