The silence

School has been going fairly well. We had a couple games yesterday. I went 0 for 6... ouch! Maybe 0 for 5 with a sacrifice, but neither are good. haha I played center field the first game (at least the part of the game that I was able to make), and then catcher the second game. I got hit twice in the same spot on the wrist at like 80 mph... not the most pleasant feeling (but it's not as bad as you'd think). I have been really wanting to go to the Rebelution Conference in Dallas at the end of June... so I came up with an idea (hehe). If total donations to the Daniel's Texas Rebelution Conference Fund exceed $150, I will run a 5K (3.1 miles) on Saturday in a suit and tie. :) I might do it anyway, but don't tell anyone that. I was reading Psalm 62:1-2 this evening, and it reminded me of the need for listening through the silence.

My soul waits in silence for God only; from Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Life has been a bit busy lately, and I would have to say that I am definitely lacking in the "waiting in silence." If you would keep me in your prayers, I really do need to slow down a bit and listen to Him. I have noticed a couple times recently where I said or did something that surprised myself (in a bad way). I know that this comes from not being focused on Him... much of this focus comes from quality time spent in prayer and in His Word (which has been lacking these last few days).
