The children sang “Thanks Be to God” today in worship. One of the lines, “Help us to live”, made me think, “How can God help me to live?”
Reflecting on this, I realized that much of my life I didn’t feel, see, hear, or fully experience the life I was living. Only until I awoke to God, listened and followed his voice, did I find true joy.
How did God awaken me? That’s difficult to answer in words. A longing summoned me to pray by listening in the silence and, through this silence, a path was illuminated that I yearned to follow. I continue on this path because in my heart it feels right and I trust my heart’s voice.
