As I wrote in a previous post, God has been speaking to me for my entire life through various means, but only now as an adult have I cleared my mind and soul to the point where I can really sit and listen to him. I can look back and see where he has reached out to me. The parable of the Boy and the Starfish comes to mind. Today when I relay the story to people I can barely hold back my unexplained emotions; it's that powerful for me. Clearly God wanted it to touch me, to have meaning. I do not know why.
Right now God is speaking to me through those "Ahhh moments", glimpses of deeper understanding, recognition, and patience. I am learning to sit quietly with my fears and shortcomings; examine them, become familiar with them. I take solace in knowing that I am not alone in the journey.
