I ask, listen, and follow the guidance I receive.
Each morning as I awake, even before I get out of bed, I take a few moments to listen. Sometimes I hear the early-morning songs of birds. Sometimes I hear the rustling of other early-morning risers. Other times, I simply hear the stillness, inviting me to turn within and listen. In these hushed early-morning times I attune to God, open to quiet whispers in my heart. I listen with my heart and with my mind, knowing that answers come in the perfect time and way. God may speak to me as a quiet nudging of my spirit, as words on a page that suddenly hold a new meaning, or as the wise voice of a trusted loved one. In whatever form my guidance comes, I remain open and receptive to the answers I seek.
He said to them, “Listen to this dream that I dreamed.”—Genesis 37:6
