Divine Presence


The key to peace and contentment…is being attuned to the now.

Matthew 1:20

The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.”


God is in the business of transforming apparent obstacles into opportunities.

If you have faith…amazing things will happen. But you may be taken way out of your comfort zone.

What a deeply spiritual man Joseph must have been to accept Mary when all conventional wisdom said to reject her. How connected he must have been to God…open to receiving a message from a divine source.

The message he received in a dream was enough to change his mind about Mary and to change the whole course of his life.

Are you open to hearing and seeing messages from God? 

Are you paying attention to your dreams?

Are you expecting a life-changing message that will lead you to wholeness and peace?

The messages might not be dramatic…but subtle.

You will need to cultivate your spiritual receptivity.

Are you setting aside quiet time for contemplative prayer or meditation?

Or are you immersing yourself further and further into the noise of the world?
