God’s talking… am I listening?

I love how the Spirit of God works in His body of believers.  Jenni Catron‘s blog yesterday had a very similar theme to mine.  I thought I’d share her thought with you today, as well as, my response.  May you take time today to retreat and dwell in His presence.

My response:
I was gifted a day of silence yesterday… so grateful for those moments when I stop and dwell in God presence, recognizing His creation, and His love.  I am normally running 100 miles a minute refueling myself on adrenaline and accomplishment.  I love moments where it feels as if God’s pausing the world just for me.  I know that it is in these moments where I am genuinely refueled with life sustaining water.  Where God breaths a breathe of fresh air into my lungs and I give off a sigh of relief.
All that said, I still struggle with not feeling guilty for retreating from responsibilities and daily noise.  God is faithful in reminding me that His Son modeled retreat.  He demonstrated His need to be with the Father.  How could I need anything less.  I also confess that sometimes I wish those moments would never end and that I could stay wrapped up in His arms and stay quiet.  But, Jesus also modeled reaching a multitude with the Father’s love, so back to the noise I go… patiently waiting for the world to stop again!
