Read Luke 13 – Shhhhh. Every now and then we need to shush and listen.
Yesterday, I was chatting with a friend as she became increasingly anxious, trying to find an item that went missing. It’s gone, she concluded. I encouraged her to stop looking, rest, then pray. She texted me later with a giant hallelujah and a photo of the item.
Today, that’s Jesus’s advice to me. I’ve searched commentaries, I’ve written this post four different ways. I just can’t figure out what to say. So I’m going to try Luke 13 again tomorrow, expecting my own hallelujah, close my Bible, and open my journal.
Beloved, how do you know when it’s time to be still and listen?
