The following was sent to me by a friend who works for a Catholic hospital and sends out a daily reflection via email. Enjoy.
" So Eli told Samuel, 'Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.' So Samuel went and lay down in his place. " 1 Samuel 3:9
It would be nice if God's voice broke into our consciousness loudly like a great bell announcing an event worth our attention. But it doesn't. God is constantly speaking to us. We must be quiet so we may hear it.
