Sacred Spaces 475– “Turn if off” advice

1 September 2015

I came across this devotional reading from Our Daily Bread recently and I really was grabbed by the lesson of it.  It seemed so obvious and yet so very impactful.

The story is humorous in a way.  I can just imagine the kid’s shocked expression on his face after that comment: “well, just turn it (the TV) off!”

Why do always need to fill our lives with “noise” and “entertainment?”
Could we not just turn some things off?
Perhaps that silence.  The lack of noise in our lives would actually be so life giving.

We don’t need to check the latest FB statuses or the latest tweets or the latest Instagram posts.
Question is; are you happy with your own company; ‘the you’ that’s not attached to gadgets and noise?

What new noises would you hear if you simply “turned it off?”
I googled some images and came across these which I think are quite fitting:

Quoted:
“I gave away my phone
Like a warm drink it seeps into my soul
Please just leave me right here on my own
Later on you could spend some time with me
If you want to”
