Hear You in the Clamor

In the stillness of this early hour, Father, may I hear Your voice. As Your Word commands, may I be able to “be still and know that [You are} God.” Psalm 46:10 Amen.

Lord, this is surely a big day pregnant with possibilities. No one knows how it will end. No one truly knows with 100% certainty what events will transpire. It will get busier. It will get noisier… but help me “to be still and know that {You are} God.” Help me to listen – not to just barrel ahead on my own. May I stop… and listen.

And, Lord, may I not just be a passive listener. There are a multitude of things to listen to. Just thinking of work, I hear people talking all around me, in my headset, too. I hear music in my area and different music in the Juniors Department. I hear doors opening and closing , children fussing, carts running into fixtures, merchandise falling to the floor, announcements over the PA, PIN pads obnoxiously announcing that it’s time for people to remove their credit cards – it’s an absolute cacophony of sounds! But in the midst of it all, I must stop… and listen… to You…

May I do more than just listen, may I hear Your voice clearly amongst all the clamor. And once I hear, my I act accordingly. May I act according to your will.

Lord, this day is Yours. As we pray so often Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Mathew 6:10 May that come to fruition this day. No matter what we want may Your “will be done.” Amen.
