The Quiet Time

Wow! Sometimes God is just entirely too cool. For this post to make the most sense, you must first read, Monday Morning Gibberish. Literally moments after pushing the publish button, I picked up a little book called, God Calling. Here is today's reading:

"There may be many times when I reveal nothing, command nothing, give no guidance. But your path is clear, and your task, to grow daily more and more into the knowledge of Me. That this quiet time with Me will enable you to do.

I may ask you to sit silent before Me, and I may speak no word that you could
write. All the same that waiting with Me will bring comfort and Peace. Only friends who understand and love each other can wait silent in each other's presence.

And it may be that I shall prove our friendship by asking you to wait in silence while I rest with you, assure of your Love and understanding. So wait, so love, so joy."


Like I said, "Sometimes God is just entirely too cool." Think I'll sit and wait awhile.

This brought tears to my eyes. He is wonderful, and tonight when I return home from work and enter into some quiet centering prayer time with him, it will be with an extra dollop of patience. To look at him/her. That's enough :)

Wow, just too good. I wonder at people who say that they "never hear God" - are they really listening?

lucy said...

ss--i absolutely agree! hearing aids for everyone, maybe??

Lucy - goodness, if you could see the blackness of my heart and the nastiness of my tongue sometimes, tender wouldn't be the first thing that came to your mind when you thought of my heart :) Thanks re pics. Felt rather egotistical putting photos of myself all over my blog - but I guss it's mine, isn't it. A bit of fun. Make ppl laugh.
