Wait quietly In My presence while My thoughts form silently in the depths of your being. Do not try to rush this process, because hurry keeps your heart earthbound. I am the Creator of the entire universe, yet I choose to make My humble home in your heart. It is there where you know Me most intimately; it is there where I speak to you in holy whispers. Ask My Spirit to quiet your mind so that you can hear My still, small voice within you. I am speaking to you continually: words of Life...Peace...Love. Tune your heart to receive these messages of abundant blessing. Lay your requests before Me and wait in expectation.
1 Kings 19:12 (NKJV)
and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
From Lauri ~ One of my favorite quotes:
Do Not Rush.
And Keep a Quiet Heart.
I think I find most help in trying to look on all the
interruptions and hindrances to work that one has
planned out for oneself as discipline, trials sent by God
to help one against getting selfish over one's work.
Then one can feel that perhaps one's true work - one's
work for God - consists in doing some trifling
haphazard thing that has been thrown into one's day. It
is not a waste of time, as one is tempted to think, it is
the most important part of the work of the day - the
part one can best off to God. After such a hindrance,
do not rush after the planned work; trust that the time to
finish it will be given sometime, and keep a quiet heart
