Intellectually I know it’s simply a matter of recognizing and turning my attention toward this individual that is always ready to encourage, support and love, but my heart keeps wanting to find complex ways to draw Him near.
I wonder if we would experience more power and freedom in our lives if we could avoid over explaining and attempting to get people to understand us. If we could tolerate being misunderstood and know that there is a power in that.
“Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.”

Being still is likely to require training given our current culture and the impact that it has had on us.
