Being Still

My morning devotional/quiet time is going really well, and I have been very consistent with only a few interruptions, but there is one thing missing…my being still and listening to the Lord.

Any ideas? What works for you? My mind just races with things to do for the day and I can't shut it off! I had a counselor want me to work on meditating…little by little. Maybe I just didn't give it enough time.

Do you meditate?

I want to truly live the verse

"Speak Lord, for your servant is listening." 1Samuel 3:9

I know there are times when we listen to God and we are not exactly in a meditative state. I truly believe I hear Him, but I want to deepen my relationship with Him and give Him that time.

Does that make sense?

5. Stuffed animals
