Thoughts on my journey to heaven

simplicity

Our series of sunday sermons continued yesterday with a teaching on simplicity as a discipline… taking time to weed out the distractions so you can hear the still small voice of God is one that is a challenge in my life.
Our challenge was to turn off eveything and just quiet our heart and mind before god and ask him what He wants of your life.
I am sad to report that yesterday I fell asleep while I was quieted and still. And today at lunch my cell phone kept going off during my quiet time.

Lord, help me to slow down, and quiet my heart so I can hear your voice. Speak to me and I will answer, call upon me and I will go or do. Take the distractions away so that I can clearly hear your voice and direction. Amen”
