I am being drawn to two words I believe by God's Spirit.
They are "Quiet" and "Still"
I believe that the Lord is trying to tell me that I need to be quiet and still before Him.
We all live in a harried,hectic world. I especially found myself very busy during the holiday's. The Lord got my attention when my feet were knocked out from under me with sickness. I was having fever and chills and I had to be still. I also had to be quiet because frankly I couldn't talk!
During this down time is when I began thinking and listening to the Spirit's still small voice. I had been to busy to listen before.
So, during this time of the New year, a time of reflection, I want to focus on really doing these two things...
Being still before the Lord.
Being quiet before the Lord.
I am not finding this to be an easy thing for me. I don't have a very long attention span. In fact, the Lord is really going to have to help me with this! I have found several verses to help me focus my attention.
