"Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening."
1 Samuel 3:9
Ahhh, I aspire to this quote!
I wish I was better at listening to God.
In this age of technology and busyness, God would have to scream in order to be heard in my head. I realize that in recent years with constant access to internet, that I have turned myself into someone with a fear of boredom and self-created ADD.
At the first moment of quiet, I don't usually think to be still or to pray, I think to fill it with the next thing on my to-do list or check Facebook or read up on the news...There is no end to the other things that I can fill up my "spare" time with.
This week's gospel tells of John the Baptist recognizing Jesus as the "Lamb of God" and the first disciples following Jesus. Can I truly be a disciple of God, if I can't quiet enough to truly listen to Him?
I'm resolving this week to learn how to be "bored" with the quiet moments and to allow God to tell me His will.
