This Weekend ~ November 14 ~ May you find your Hesychia

The Desert Mothers and Father called silence “hesychia” which means inner quiet, rest, and stillness. Silence helped them with discernment and to hear God. We let go of all the external and internal chatter to draw near the whisper of God and discover the space between words. In practicing silence I am learning to be more selective in my words and often choosing not to speak just to make my opinion known. Silnce helps us to intentionally create a space to surrender to the unknown and to hear what another Voice has to say. ~Jean Wise in this post

 

John Climacus wrote, that Stillness of the soul is “accurate knowledge and management of one’s thoughts” (The Ladder of Divine Ascent, page 269). Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church admonishes them to take captive every thought   2 Corinthians 10:5. Joyce Meyer reminds us to take our thoughts captive back to Jesus instead of the “to-do list” myriad of distractions.

Hesychia is a new word for me. It is a Blessing word, to be sure!

Due to scheduling limitations, for me, this weekend, Hesychia will be represented by a locked door in my house. Whether your preference is to go and seek it out or abide where you are and draw it in, may you embrace the godly rest of Hesychia this weekend.
