Pause

The Spirit of God oftentimes comes to us so quietly that we have to lean in to hear the soft voice that beckons us.

Lean in. Cup a hand around your ear and focus. Give up the need to understand and care only to hear.

Still your mind. Breathe deep. Be ready for whatever may come to inspire you.

Listen

"But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. For as the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing until the flood came and swept them all away, so too will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two will be in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding meal together; one will be taken and one will be left."

Matthew 24:36-41

Think

It will be like a whisper. It will be so unexpected that it will take everyone by surprise. It will be unlike anything that has happened before and not like anything that will ever happen again.

So it’s best to be very quiet and listen. It’s best to be still, settle into a comfortable chair, and watch out of the corner of your eye. Life will go on as usual, day in and day out; morning and afternoon and evening will each follow one another into every inky black night. Only those who are paying attention will have the first clue what is about to happen.

The coming of the Lord. The coming of the Lord.

He always shows up this way.

Go

Listen.
Listen with your heart.
Your ears may deceive you,
But your heart is the kinder guide.

There is a softness in the air;
The word travels lightly in the wind.
Still then your feet for only a moment,
And feel the message all around.
