There is no thing through which God cannot speak – even the walk from the house to the garage that you have walked ten thousand times before, even the moments when you cannot believe there is a God who speaks at all anywhere….
‘Be not afraid…for lo, I am with you always, even unto the end for the world.’
He says he is with us on our journeys. He says he has been with us since each of our journeys began. Listen for him. Listen to the sweet and bitter airs of your present and your past for the sound of him.”
– Frederick Buechner
“Modern people lack silence. They no longer lead their own lives; they are dragged along by events. It is a race against the clock…If your life is chock-full already, there won’t be room for anything else. Even God can’t get anything else in. So it becomes essential to cut something out.”
– Paul Tournier
“It takes time to cultivate the mind. It takes time to grow in wisdom. It takes time to savor the qualities of living. It takes time to feel one’s way into one’s self. It takes time to walk with God.
Forsake us not in the tempests of our daily activities, O our Father, but tutor our minds and spirits in the great tranquilities, that deep within we may be still and know that Thou art God. Amen.”
– Howard Thurman
