While you might consider life as a disciple to be filled with activity, one of the more important invitations Jesus gives us is rest. Solitude and silence work together in disciplining our hearts to find satisfying rest in Christ. Solitude is blocking out all outside voices and interactions so that we can focus on God. Silence is abstaining from speech so that we can listen to God’s words to us. This exercise is a great tool to equip ourselves in the important practices of silence and solitude.
