A farmer lost his watch in the barn. The watch had great sentimental value, so he searched for it to no avail. He heard some kids playing outside, and explained to them about his watch. He asked if they would help him find it. They all searched but could not find the watch. He thanked them for their help and sent them off. As they were leaving , one little boy asked if he could try again. The farmer decided to give him another chance, and the boy returned to the barn. About half an hour later, the boy walked out of the barn with the watch. The farmer was amazed, and asked how he could find the watch when so many had been looking and failed. The boy replied, “I didn’t do anything…I just sat in silence and listened. Eventually, I heard the ticking of the watch, and followed the sound.”

Sometimes if we just sit quietly, we will hear the “ticking” of our Savior’s promptings, leading us to the truth and helping us on our way. If you rearrange 2 letters in the word “SILENT” you  then have “LISTEN”. 

I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalms 46:10)

The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. (Psalms 46:11)

Heavenly Father,
I praise you and acknowledge you
as my refuge, strength and always
ready help in times of trouble. Please
remind us to transform the letters
of “SILENT” to “LISTEN.” In the name
of our precious Savior, Jesus the Christ.
