Take Time to Listen

Be still and know that I am God Ps 46.10

Many years ago a little boy was given a priceless possession: his deceased grandfather's gold pocket watch. How he treasured it. But one day, while playing at his father's ice plant, he lost the watch amidst all the ice and sawdust.

He searched and scratched, becoming frantic, but no watch. Then he suddenly realized what to do. He stopped scurrying around and became very still. In the
silence he heard the watch ticking.

Our lives are so busy. We frantically rush from one event to the next, and tackle a myriad of new projects before we completed the last one. There is just no time to stop and listen to the voice of God.
