Silenced in the Garden

Since I was a young girl, one of my favorite songs to sing is "In the Garden." 
When I think of silence, my mind goes back to this song.

I picture myself in a garden with the Lord. 

I do not cannot say a word; I am in awe of the One who knows me and loves me.

I am silenced...

Being in the presence of my Redeemer humbles me. 

Sitting in the garden with the Resurrection and the Life renders me speechless.

Basking in the warmth of the Bright and Morning Star transforms me.

Resting in the care of the Good Shepherd comforts me.

 I come to the garden alone

While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.   
Charles Austin Miles (1912)

holy experience
