I saw this poster on FaceBook. It truly struck a chord with me today. You see, sometimes I pray for guidance, but I think I know what direction I want to go. other times when I pray for general guidance, I am clueless as to even my own preference. I just know that my heart aches for more “something“. Certainly not more of Him ~ because how can you have more of ‘Everything‘? How can I hear His voice if I am endlessly jabbering? Right, I cannot!
I must admit, there are times when I know I must just be still and wait. I know that direction and guidance, and yes, peace of mind and heart will come. Of course it is always His timing, not mine. What I have realized lately though, is that the waiting IS part of the answer. Oh so long ago I prayed for patience. Now that I know to stop, wait, and attend to His voice when He speaks, the answers and/or the patience to wait for the answers (even if the answer will be “no, little one, that is not what is best for you”) are already on their way.
