So much clamors for our time and attention all day long (and at nighttime, too.)
Responsibilities tug at us from all sides while distractions deluge us thru social media as we constantly ‘check in.’
During Lent it’s a time to make space for stillness in our hearts. To be quiet (turn our phones off for a sec or two.) To listen.
“Be still and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10)
“Let us look within ourselves and see whether there is some delightful hidden place where we can be free of noise and argument. Let us hear the Word of God in stillness and perhaps we will then come to understand it.” Saint Augustine
grace, peace & stillness

“What matters is to listen attentively to the spirit and to go obediently where we are being led, whether to a joyful or a painful place.” Henri Nouwen
