Be Still


The Presence of God is everywhere.

Matthew 12:38

Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”


How often do we do the same thing…ask God for a sign?

While the scribes and Pharisees were asking to test Jesus…what if we in good faith ask for a Divine sign?

There is nothing wrong with this as I think there is a Loving Goodness at work Who delights in giving us signs.

Did you ever wonder how many signs we might be missing…simply because we are too busy and distracted by the “noise” we are constantly immersed in…and are immersing ourselves in

Do you ever experience silence?

How often is your own mind the source of noise with its endless critiquing, judging and commentary?

Stop and observe your rambling thoughts.

Who is the one observing those thoughts?

You…the real you.

Allow your true self to emerge. Set aside 10 to 20 minutes today to simply sit in silence and let go of your thoughts.

Then make it a practice to really be present to your life. Observe your surroundings without judgement or critique.

You just may find that Divine messages…abound.
