This week the people of the Granger movement are intentionally listening.
Over the years, no other practice has been so helpful in moving me from selfishness to selflessness, from worry to peace, from fear to courage, from sleep to awareness than simply learning to listen to God’s voice.
How can you recession proof your attitude during this tough economic crisis?
What is the number one thing you need to do to make sure your head and heart stay on an even keel?
How do we move beyond the sense of isolation and anxiety that dominates a life on autopilot?
Listen. To. God.
Listening to God is a transformative practice where one moves beyond speaking words and images to a form of interior prayer of stillness. The purpose is to open yourself up to the presence of the God who is both within you and who transcends you. Discover a place with God within you – an inner sanctuary – that becomes more and more established in you. Eventually, it can become the place you live from, a posture that shapes the entirety of your life.
For me, listening to Jesus is about that journey from the head to the heart.
As you pray today, please take advantage of the great tools Mark is offering you as a starting point. I’ve embedded today’s video here. But, also make sure to not just speak to God today. Listen. In the silence and quietude, try something novel, "Listen."
Be still and make space for Jesus to speak.
