Are you present to the Divine Presence?

(Listen to my song “Turn Off the Noise” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


1 Samuel 3:9-10

When Samuel went to sleep in his place, the Lord came and revealed his presence, calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel!” Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”


How often are you silent?

Probably not often.

But even if you do find some quiet time…is your mind quiet as well?

I think you’d have to admit…it’s not.

Our minds are constantly chattering away…usually repeating over and over and over judgments and commentaries.

So if God ever wanted to actually say something to you…would you ever be listening?

God speaks in the silence of your heart.

In today’s scripture verse, Samuel had opened a receptive awareness for God to be heard.

He was totally present…so that he could be attuned to the Divine Presence

Try setting aside 20 minutes a day to be silent and to let go of thoughts.

I promise you…your life will change for the better.
