It could be in the still, quiet of the early morning. Maybe you are alone. Maybe you have a little one sitting next to you. It could be loud with this and that going on around you but in your small inner space it is quiet. Maybe its in the middle of the day while eating lunch, over coffee or with an afternoon snack. It could be late at night, when the day is done, everyone is in bed and all is quiet once again.
Whatever the time of day it is He is there. He is listening. He is waiting for you to stop and take some time with Him. He wants to speak to us, fill us with hope for the day, reminders of His promises, His truth and love. Yes, He is listening to us but He wants us to listen to Him as well. Even when the “to-do” list is longer than usual, when the day just doesn’t start out right, even when every obstacle it seems is getting in your way. Because all those things will happen and more. Just do it. Stop. Listen. And take time with Him.
What are you listening to?
