Be Still

God is speaking. Are you listening?

~~~

Jeremiah 7:23
This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk in all the ways that I command you, so that you may prosper.

~~~

“This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

Jesus said this so that we would know that “God’s reign” (or God’s dream for you) is possible in this very moment…not just some distant time in heaven.

Our Loving Creator wants each of us to be a part of building the kingdom of God right now…using our gifts and talents to make a more compassionate world. But it’s not possible if we are holding on to past hurts or are constantly worrying about the future.

What are the “ways” God is asking you to walk in now so that you truly prosper…as in grow, feel vibrantly alive and become your true self?

There is no way you can know if you are not listening for God’s gentle, silent, inner voice.

To do this…we must “repent” which literally means, “to turn” or to “change directions.”

Turn to God.

God is always speaking…but are we listening?
