Are we listening?

“When we listen carefully, we find that God calls us to divine appointments at the most surprising times: sunrise, sunset, alone, in a crowd, on a beach, in the family room. Sometimes we come wholeheartedly, listening to God and responding to Him with abandon. Other times we look around, cough nervously, and arrive halfheartedly, hearing but not authentically responding.

God knows our hearts, and He patiently asks us to bring more of ourselves to Him than we have before.”

~Excerpted from Take Flight! by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan

May we be sensitive to divine appointments today and every day this week.

  1. It is like praying with our eyes wide open.
