When You Listen…

28 Jan

… you learn a lot.

I was  indeed thinking and talking a lot with God. In my eighty-second year I thought I had a lot to talk about–my past, what’s going on or not going on in my life now, and what was I to do with the rest of my life.

After a bit, I began musing about what God may want me to do. I recalled one of my favorite lines in Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God.”

So I became still and then the thought came to me: “Maybe I’m supposed just to  be and to wait”

Be still. Wait.

Be still and wait and know that I am God.

    I have this plaque in my house and have found it to be so helpful. So simple, just wait and God will lead a willing soul.

    Beautiful. Thank you Henry. Recently I have been listening a lot to John Michael Talbot singing Be still and know that I am God. I find especially when one is before the Blessed Sacrament just quietly and unhurried in that stillness He speaks and teaches.
