Listening for God

Courtesy LPI Art & Media Portal

Then the LORD said, "Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD; the LORD will be passing by."  A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains and crushing rocks before the LORD-but the LORD was not in the wind.  After the wind there was an earthquake-but the LORD was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake there was fire-but the LORD was not in the fire.  After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.

~1 Kings 19:11-12~


Sometimes silence says more than words.

Silence is the language God speaks to our hearts.

We need only to give listening a chance and to

"Be still and know that [God is] God"

(Ps 46:10).


To get started, listen to "Sacred Silence"


You can also reflect on being alone with God here


Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize God's presence in our lives.  If this is something you are experiencing, read "What to Do When Nothing 'Happens' During Prayer."  God loves and is always with you!



It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.  It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
