31 Days: Trusting enough to listen

Listening Prayer

Do I trust God? Do I trust His goodness? Do I trust His heart for me? Do I trust Him enough to put myself in His hands and listen?

Honestly, some days it’s much easier than others. Some days I want to climb up into his lap and lay my ear against His chest. Some days I want to stamp my foot and insist that my way is best. The clay telling the potter what he should do. And still He holds out his hands as he patiently loves me and waits for me.

31 Days: In the Silence of the Heart

I always begin my prayer in silence, for it is in the silence of the heart that God speaks. God is the friend of silence – we need to listen to God because it’s not what we say but what He says to us and though us that matters.

~ Mother Theresa


In the silence of the heart you speak.

How Lord? How does one silence the heart? How do I still my heart? How do I make space for you to enter in?

Offer up the things that are worrying you. Let go of the things you’re holding onto, and give them to me.

I will give you rest. I will make myself known to you.

That sounds good to me Lord. That sounds very good. How is it that you take my wretched, dirty gifts and then you give me the priceless gift of yourself?

In the silence of the heart you speak love. Thank you Lord.
