God’s voice speaks in the silence of your heart.

Acts 16:13-14

On the sabbath we went outside the city gate along the river where we thought there would be a place of prayer. We sat and spoke with the women who had gathered there. One of them, a woman named Lydia…listened, and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what Paul was saying.

Sometimes we need to find a place of prayer…a tranquil place that allows us to put aside the distractions of life.

Then, we need let go.

Let go of the thoughts that constantly flood our brains…let go of our personal agendas.

Let go.

Be present.

Be silent.

Listen.

As thoughts pop up…simply observe them…and allow them to dissolve.

Open your heart and pay attention to the inner voice there.

Set aside special silent time each day to be present to the Divine Presence and see how your heart is opened to new insights, peace and love.

Then…you’ll find you will be able to enter this silent place of peace…even amid the clamor and turbulence of the world.
