I love you, My child.
I know the paths of right living may be harder to find
in your cluttered culture.
A culture of quiet living tends to bring large blocks of time
for contemplation and meditation.
Since you choose to live My way, you will find treasures in silence.
You know you obtain energy and satisfaction studying My Word.
Take the necessary time to do so.
Your other tasks will get done.
I know many things are hard for you.
However, you are growing and changing.
You want to learn My ways and I will hold your hand as we walk.
I will keep you.
Some of you have written how difficult it is to be still in this modern age. Recently the television has been on for days because of tragedies in our country and it is hard to find a quiet place to listen for God’s voice in the midst of the chatter.
However, when we purpose in our hearts to follow the Master, I believe His still small voice encourages us to find the time and place where we can meditate on His words whispered to us or found in scripture.
Even enjoying the lovely tall pines that surround me today, glimpsing an elusive red cardinal or blue jay bring to mind God’s wonderful creation He made for us to enjoy.
