Mound Visits, 3/9/23
Between the ages of eight and twenty-four, there was seldom a summer day that I wasn’t playing catch with someone. Growing up, it was usually with my brother or a friend. Sometimes we would talk. Many times there was silence except for the ball popping the leather glove. We could communicate without talking. We would enjoy the throwing and catching and just being together.
In our prayer time with God, it probably should be that way. Sometimes we just need to “be” with Him. Just enjoying being alone with Him is good enough. That’s when we can listen with our hearts for guidance, encouragement or instructions.
“Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent, and I will speak.”
“The soul is never less alone than when it is alone with God.”- (Samuel Chadwick)
