In the Silence, I listen. In the stillness, God answers.
Our days are filled with messages received from friends, work, or media outlets. While it may seem difficult to discern which, if any, of these are divine messages, I learn to listen with my heart and mind open to God. “You are loved,” is the melody sung by songbirds. “You can do it!” is whispered in my ear as I tackle a challenge. Other times a divine idea persistently speaks to me, nudging me into action—“Try this.” “I am with you always” is what I hear as I move into prayer. There is no end to the ways God brings guidance and encouragement to me. When I hear words that uplift and inspire me, I know these are divine messages meant just for me.
When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”—Daniel 10:19
