longing to hear you speak
I have this image in my head, that comes and goes, of sitting in a chapel. There are candles lit, at least in my mind, and there is total silence. Suddenly, the candles flicker, and I am standing in the darkness. I am trying to concentrate on hearing His voice, but my mind wanders, as if on a train, heading back and forth between stations. I focus on a song, to call Him closer, to feel His voice, but I fail.
How do you train your mind to be still? To allow itself to hear what God wants to tell you. I will keep trying, to let Him find me in my restless spirit, and speak to me.
