Recently, while with a group of friends, I heard a wise man talk.
He reminded us that silence is our friend. It is a way for us to listen to what the Lord is saying to us.
We need to stop in silence and ask the question, "God, what are you saying to me?"
Getting in touch with this capacity to hear his voice is the greatest gift of all. No one can take it from us and we can take it anywhere we go.
During the Lenten season that begins next Wednesday, I pray you will spend time in silence and seek to hear his voice.
There are many things he wants to whisper to you. And when someone whispers it has to be quiet for us to hear.
