There have been quite a few times that I’ve retreated to my bedroom for some quiet time with God and this furbaby comes to find me. It’s a very cute yet cuddly interruption. Purrcy is my sweet boy.
I recently completed the first weekend of SOULWELL. (I hope to share more about that soon.) During this weekend, I really learned how to make space for God. I learned that it’s not nearly as important as what I say in prayer as it is being with God…thus stillness, silence and solitude. In this way, it’s much easier to hear God when He speaks. And He does speak to us, we just have to make space and learn to discern His voice. Don’t we need to hear from Him now more than ever?!
A while before SOULWELL, I had started trying to ask God questions and listening. One Saturday morning before I got out of bed, I asked God, “how do you delight in me?” The first thing that popped into my mind was this fur ball and my eyes welled up with tears. If God delights in me like I delight in Purrcy, that says a lot to me. I’ve always been able to love more freely with my pets than I have people. I’m guarded with people, but animals are much easier…less risk of being hurt. God knew just how to answer my question that morning. It was an impactful answer…that He delights in me, He loves me freely with no holds barred. He loves me easily and He can use even a special furry friend to show me.
I hope you are seeing and hearing God in all the places, because He is whispering and He is in all the places around us. As this week wraps up, I hope you find space for a little silence and stillness. Our whole world could really use it right now.
