God of stillness, it's easy to overlook you in these busy days. Create in me a longing for your quiet presence, that I may stop, breathe, and listen for your wisdom and instruction. Amen.
God waits for me in the stillness.
This is a picture from Penuel Ridge, the retreat center I refer to in The Uncluttered Heart today. This is the place where I learned to be silent, to be still inside. The building in the picture is "The Well," a round chapel made with straw-bale construction.
What are the challenges keeping you from reaching the stillness? What do you need to do in order to find a quiet space?
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
