God Speaks in Silence

Silent self-emptying will transform your life.

John 6:45
“Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.”

It’s not what we do that brings us closer to God but what we let be done to us by God.

Our lives are not an achievement contest or a life-long SAT test!

It’s about simply being in relationship with of our Loving Creator.

Allow God to draw you closer.

Listen.

Hear that you are God’s beloved child.

Bask in that awareness.

Then your actions will not be to merit or achieve anything…but will simply be your response to being loved.

Come to Christ in your brokenness…just as you are. Allow God’s unconditional love to transform you.

It’s only then that you can be a channel of that same Love and Compassion to others.

For this to happen…it’s essential to set aside quiet time in the presence of the Divine Presence.

Just listen.

    He indeed does, and if we have ears, we will be able to listen to that still voice.
