Be still and know that God is with you.

(Listen to my song “Breathe On Me” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 102:2-3

Lord, hear my prayer; let my cry come to you. Do not hide your face from me now that I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly.


In the Psalms we see every human emotion expressed to God.

It is part of the human experience to call out to God for help in time of need.

Have you ever noticed how that seems instinctual?

And thanks to the teaching of Jesus, we believe that God actually listens and cares!

Jesus called God “Abba” which is translated as an intimate term for father…somewhat like “daddy.” It’s as though our Creator is the best of both father and mother.

The God that Jesus spoke to was not stern, critical or judgmental. God was not far away but readily accessible…and so it is now.

God is as close to you as your breath.

The same Divine Spark that ignited creation is also inside you.

But why does it seem that God does not answer our calls? Could it be because we are impatient? I know I am! 

Let us trust that God is answering us because we are beloved sons and daughters.

In the silence of the void God is answering.

Waiting is part of the process through which we will live into the answer that is best for us.

We will be led to healing, wholeness and a deeper faith and the awakening of our true selves.
