Acts 18:9-11

One night in a vision the Lord said to Paul, “Do not be afraid. Go on speaking, and do not be silent, for I am with you. No one will attack and harm you, for I have many people in this city.” He settled there for a year and a half and taught the word of God among them.


What is God asking you to do?

God speaks to all of us, not just special people like St. Paul.

We’re all special in God’s eyes.

We’re all God’s beloved children.

Sadly, most of us have not been taught about the contemplative dimensions of our faith, the practices through which we connect to the spiritual realm.

We are here as co-creators.

We are instruments in God’s hands to help bring about a world of peace, compassion and equal justice for all.

Jesus called it the “kingdom of God.”

When we are in the flow of God’s will, we are living our calling as our true selves.

How can we do this if we aren’t in tune with God?

How can this happen unless we are regularly communing with God in silent receptivity?

This takes practice.

You need a contemplative practice like Centering Prayer or other forms of meditation.

You also need to be aware that God is present and intimately part of your life!

This is how Paul could be open to seeing the Lord in a vision and how he could trust to do what he was told.

It resulted in him settling in a new town for a year to teach the people about this wondrous Creator.

I guarantee you that if you start listening to God in humility and openness, you will hear a gentle and loving voice.

Then, get ready for your life to change and become a magical adventure!
