Well I finally got around to reading this Lectio Divina. Half way through it dawned on me how much in my life is geared towards making sure I don’t miss what’s important to me. When I’m watching a movie I turn up the volume so I can hear it. If my wife and kids start talking I’ll pause it, rewind it or even start over from the beginning. I’m sure I could give plenty of other examples too.
Lectio Divina seems like it would be a great place to start a great life of prayer. What better prayer could there be than to let God speak and to just listen for His voice? All too often I’ve approached prayer with petition only. But prayer should be a two way communication, a relationship. Don’t we always look for signs that our prayers have been answered?
Let’s pray for one another that we come to a place in our lives where we abandon everything for God and we have ears to hear.
