Into the Quiet

The phone is off.
The television is off.
The computer is off.
The music player is off.
The car is off.

Sure, in a way it is quiet,
but still, this is not the quiet
I am searching for.

My mind is racing —
thoughts are clanging around
cares are distracting
to-do list leftovers are screaming.

How do I find the quiet?
Is there a switch?
Can I turn off all the distractions?
Is there a door?
Can I just walk away from the noise
and into the quiet?

God, take me into the quiet.
Take me into Your peace.
Please, God, let’s go together,
walk with me into the quiet.

  1. I have not been to that place of silence in a long time. This reminds me and causes a urge to go there!

  2. Oh to shut it all down even for a moment. Where is that switch? And once I finally locate it, dust it and flip it off, will I want to turn it back on? That thought scares me too.
