Secret Sunday

Find a secret place to spend time with the Lord.  You may want to take your Bible and enjoy a great cup of coffee...

Strive for a life of recollection so that you can hear My voice, which is so soft that only recollected souls can hear it.

I have come to know that, in order for God to act in a soul, it must give up acting on its own; otherwise, God will not carry out His will in it.

In order to hear the voice of God, one has to have silence in one's soul and to keep silence; not a gloomy silence but an interior silence; that is to say, recollection in God. 

“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)

Hi Adrienne...Are those your photos, too? Loved the one of the lone duck gliding along the water. Makes me think of me! Ha! Beautiful photos and nice thoughts, too. Take care and have a wonderful Sunday. Sincerely, Susan
