Sometimes God speaks to me through the mind-opening words of a song, a poem, a friend. Sometimes God speaks to me through the kindness and compassion of a stranger, a family member, a medical professional. Sometimes God speaks to me through my gut feelings, instincts, life experiences. Sometimes God speaks to me when I read sacred Scripture.

Maybe God is always speaking to me. Today I will practice listening more deeply.

Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:10b
