"Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth."

Psalm 46:10 (NRSV)


   The wind blows. The birds sing. The leaves rustle. Often times noise and distractions take us from recognizing the obvious. Even the beat of our heart or the rhythm of your breath, it is there for you to hear it, if you will only listen.

   Hear the Good News, Be still and listen. Know that God is there, speaking, even crying out for you to hear. Listen with your heart and know. Stop talking and even stop your thinking, just listen, close your door, turn off your radio and listen. Close your eyes and take a meeting, a meeting with God.


   Gracious Father, this morning I listen. Thank You for all that You have done in my life and all You will continue to do, for I ask this through Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
