SWITCH OFF YOUR LIST!

SWITCH OFF YOUR LIST!
‘I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from Him…..Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.’ Psalm 62:1,5 NLT
‘All that I am wait quietly “………. Life is so incredibly noisy. Tuning out the constant din of demands, requests, lists, expectations, and catering to our perceived needs can appear to be an impossible task. The art of listening, truly listening, attention undivided has been replaced with the multi-tasking listener. We have become way too accustomed to focussing on multiples, driven by the bottom line of productivity.
Our children speak, our spouse speaks, a friend or colleague speaks………Yes, we are listening, but how much do we really hear? In the background our mind wanders to the scrolling list, as we attempt to keep one step, one thought ahead.
How much are we missing in the moment, the then and there?
God speaks!
Imagine if we gave all of ourselves, every bit mind, body and soul over to our time with Him. How much more would we hear? How much deeper would we go?
‘We receive only when we are recollected; only in silence is heard the beating heart of God.’- Father Bernardo Olivera.
Let us purpose ourselves to hearing, to giving Him our undivided attention and realise what we may only once have imagined.
