How can we hear the still small voice of God if we’re not giving Him the space to speak to us?
I’m asking myself – and you.
When I’m driving to work, I listen to books on CD that I check out from a library that’s conveniently along the way. I tend to listen to books that are fiction. My reasoning is that since I’m thinking all day long, so I need a break from analytical thinking by putting my mind in neutral.
But if I’m filling that neutral mind with a story, I don’t have space to listen to God.
So starting now, I’ll be switching off the car stereo for at least one day a week. It’s a start.
And I’ll begin my drive by asking God to speak to me while I drive.
Will you join me in this challenge?
Who knows – we may end up by being nicer drivers too!
