Humanity is wild. We have our plans, our values, our ambitions, our responsibilities, our activities, and especially in America, it’s like a mighty river that we get swept into day to day. That river roars with its forces, it drowns out the existence of all surrounding landscape. It dominates. Sometimes it can seem that we do not have a choice as we are swept away in that river. The forces around us are too strong. But then there is God…

 

Sometimes, we go thru seasons where God wants us to sit, to listen. He sits us down intentionally. He wants to speak to us, He wants that mighty river to calm. He quells it’s affect on us. He is patient. He waits for us to calm, just like we are His children. He lets us sit in that silence. He lets the calm become the background. Then, He speaks. He wants our attention. He has good things, and He wants to give them to us. He wants us to sit in what He says. Out of His mouth comes a river of life, and His words shape us as we dwell in them- like clay in the hands of a Potter. 

 

By His voice, the world was created. How important it is to listen to that voice speak to us!
