Spiritual Solitude & Silence – Alan Kearns

  1. Silence is undervalued and underused in our modern society. I simply cannot remember the last time I just sat in silence and rested in the Lord’s presence. This is a real challenge to me personally. Thanks for reminding me of the importance of silence and another encouraging post!

  2. Alan, thank you for sharing this powerful message. I’m currently going through a situation that has necessitated more silence and solitude. I am grateful for the reminder, “Our Lord was silent before his enemies.” Jesus was confident in who he was, the son of God, and therefore had no reason to defend himself. His life, actions, and ministry were his defense.

    As I observe the Lord God answer wordless prayers it comforts and reassures me of HIS steadfast love.

    Thank you brother Alan.
