Quiet Rest

Written by Wisdom Hunters

We need silence in our life in order to manage the noise; otherwise, the noise manages us. Watch as Boyd shares about his time on a silent retreat and why he believes now, more than ever, that quiet time before the Lord should be at the forefront of our life.

      Dear Annie,
      Thank you so very much for your sweet words about the Wisdom Hunter’s devotionals. I will pass your comments on to the rest of the staff and I know they will be blessed by your words. Boyd, Shana and Tripp write the words that God inspires them to write and give all the glory to Him!
      I love when you wrote “I am forever learning”. You know, Annie, I think all of us, as children of God, feel like we are ALWAYS learning. Through His Word, through others and through our daily walk with Him, He is always teaching us. I Praise Him for being our forever Teacher!!
      We are so grateful for you Annie, and look forward to hearing from you again. Keep shining His Light so others may come to know Him.
      Believing and trusting~

      “I love you, O Lord, my strength.
      The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
      my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
      He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
      Psalm 18:1-2

    Dear Boyd and staff,
    I was heading out to walk in a beautiful water and nature area by our Library, but needed to check my email first. I saw your email and was drawn to the title – of course God was speaking to me about needing silence. I’ve been praying for Him to help direct my life and my steps as I’m entering a new life phase at 72 years old. My husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 20, 2018.
    Your silent retreat sounds amazing. While I have my daily early devotional, prayer and quiet time with God, I realize I am still tethered to my phone, the clock and my “to do” list. Funny how our mind cannot stay focused and cannot “listen well” in that setting.
    About two weeks after my husband died, I started writing in what I called, “My grateful and thanksgiving Journal.” In reading through the first few weeks, I can now see how I’ve progressed through the grieving, agony and anger I was feeling. That quiet time, while focusing on blessings in each day was helpful. But, I’m not where I want to be yet – and yes, I’m not patient even though I KNOW everything is in God’s timing.
    Please pray for me to be at peace and find the contentment and direction only He can give. Because I have family and friends that support me in this journey, I am truly blessed. Thank you for Wisdom Hunters…btw, “Learning to Lead like Jesus” is SO amazing!
    Off to my Silent Walk!
    In His Service, Lois

      Dear Lois,
      I read your response to us a few times and each time I read it, I could picture you walking through the beautiful setting you describe, quietly listening to God as He was speaking to your heart. Lois, I am sorry to hear about the loss of your husband and can only imagine how you must miss him. I am thankful that you personally know the Great Comforter, especially during this time of grieving. What a wonderful idea to start your “grateful and thanksgiving journal” during this tender time of loss, focusing on God’s blessings each day. Lois, what a powerful reminder that journal must be of our Father’s Healing and Grace in a time you needed Him so.
      Yes, Lois, sweet sister, we would be blessed to pray for you in the days ahead. May you truly feel His Presence in these quiet moments and feel His Warmth and Comfort each day.
      Praying for you and thanking Him, in advance, for His continued Peace and Comfort.
      So very grateful for you, Lois.
      Please keep in touch with us and let us know how you are.
      Believing and trusting,
      Gwynne

      “Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
      You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.”
