Just Listen

I used to think that God wouldn't talk to me because I didn't take time to read the bible. I just can't sit and read it. Then, I started to listen more carefully. As my mom says, "He will find a way to reach you." This is how he has found a way to talk to me:

Oprah's Master Class 

When Richard tells Liz in Eat Pray Love to "Stop trying and surrender." 

When I read a sign that says "You're braver than you believe. You're stronger than you know." 

When another sign says, "You can't change the wind but you can adjust your sails."

When my mentor tells me, "Just trust."

When the first rock that I see at my favorite garden store says, "Let it be."

When my daily quote book lands on this quote the day the big news was supposed to come, "Letting go means accepting life just as it is: elusive, free, spontaneous and without limits." 

Just in case I didn't get it, the next day says, "Learn to stop and you will learn stability, once stable, you will learn to rest, in rest, you will learn serenity, in serenity, you will learn to reflect, and through reflection you will succeed."

Apparently, God has to be very literal with me, which results in a good laugh for both of us.

It's amazing isn't it? I've actually been recently finding God's voice all around me when I decided to just sit and listen. And now you're another sign. =D
