Hymns Of Christmas — Silent Night!
Silence is something we often take for granted. We fear it, or we try to fill it, or we keep moving so quickly that we don't even notice it's there int he background.
But that first silent night, the one we sing about at Christmas every year, was perfect in its holiness. The calm came from the presence of the Lord with us. The brightness came from the Light who would walk among men.
The heavenly peace that descended on the night of Christ's birth was heaven-sent. Even if we turn off the television, mute the radio and get everyone around us to stop talking, it won't be the same as the quiet in our hearts that comes from God alone. That's the peace they experienced that night in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago.
Whether you have five minutes or five hours, fill your heart and your mind with the silence that comes from peace with the Lord. Allow His calm to fill you and flow out of you. There is nothing in this life so important that it should block out the stillness of Christmas. If you know there is right now, get rid of it. Put Christ first and experience that silent night in addition to singing about it.
