Create an inviting space for silence in your home or workplace. Assemble meaningful objects—a candle, cross, picture, prayer beads—whatever reminds you of God’s presence. Notice the holy invitation to spend time there.
Sharing Your Faith:
Review the “Fruits of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23). Which of them would you like God to grow in you? Commit to 5 or more minutes of total, trusting silence each day. Trust that the Holy Spirit is planting the unseen seeds of those fruits within your soul. Pray for one another.
