Golden Silence

Praying Time

When we are faced with seemingly impossible problems and conflicts, silence is golden.  It gives God a chance to work in our hearts.  It provides space for anger, bitterness, and hard feelings to subside and mellow.  Most important, it allows us to seek God’s trusting silence, meditation, and prayer, we are ready to move towards conflict resolution.  And often, after this time of “fasting” from words and “feasting” on God’s words, we find that the walls of anger and bitterness come tumbling down.
