Faith Walk: Take Time to Listen

Author: Dr. George Flattery

Our minds (to use a wonderful image from Henri Nouwen) are like a banana tree filled with monkeys constantly jumping up and down.

We can find our thoughts racing with this weeks schedule, scrolling through social media, thinking about a difficult conversation that we had or feeling fear about the future. The question becomes, “Is the noise level of our lives low enough for us to hear the whispers of God?” Psalms 46:10 encourages us to “Be still and know that He is God.” In stillness, our lives are put into perspective, our hearts are filled with peace and we find clarity in the midst of confusion. God speaks to people who take the time to listen — not just for a day but also on a regular basis.

Daily encouragements reminding us how to continually walk in faith. Taken from Dr. George Flattery's Facebook devotional series.
