Got too busy, too distracted, to take time to ponder.
Today is a good day to begin again.
It’s so good that God doesn’t condemn when we take those ‘sabbaticals’ . He
patiently waits until we tune into Him again. Oh, I’ve come to Him since
February, that’s for sure, but more with my agenda than spending quiet time,
silent time to hear what He would say to me.
Imagine if I hiked a tall mountain to speak to a wise person and when I got there all I did was talk, then left to make my descent. I didn’t spend any time sitting and listening or
asking questions and waiting for an answer or enter conversation? That would be
a waste of time and energy, wouldn’t it.
I feel like I do that a lot. Spend all my time asking God for this and that, but no time actually allowing Him to communicate with me.
On this long holiday weekend, maybe it’s a good time to sit and listen to the wind blow, the birds sing, ponder God’s written Word (the Bible) and allow God to speak.
