This last month I have been on the go!
I've had an event that required traveling for the past four weekends in a row, and three of those weekends I was on my own.
I spent several quiet hours in the car, all alone without any distractions. I thought I would spend the time listening to music or talks, but as it turned out I spent the time talking to God.
I poured out every ounce of my heart. I thanked Him for all of the exciting things happening in my life. I told him about my progress. I divulged my weaknesses and worries, and told him how grateful I am for the love and support that surround me, even when I feel alone. I asked Him for help,and I shared my desire to better recognize His voice in my life.
I pictured Him there next to me in the passenger seat, and He carefully listened to everything I had to say.
The most amazing part was when I realized that I could actually hear His voice. Or was I feeling it? It's difficult to say, because He speaks in a whisper. A whisper that comes from every direction and completely engages your senses. I'm finding that it really is true. If we want to recognize His voice, we just need to be quiet.
I know that He knows me.
There is no doubt about that, and this month of insight and inspiration has reminded me that it's in the seeking to know Him that we discover the happiness we've been looking for in all the wrong places.
