God never goes away, never forgets all day long who you are, what you are and how you have been.
His whole heart is concentrated on you.
He watches over you with the eye of a mother watching an only child. He sees not the surface things and flaws inevitable to human imperfection, but the truly adorable in you… your dependence on him… your need of him.
Does a mother love her child less because he has fallen and bruised himself? No, indeed!
What then must we do?
Listen. Be silent. Let God speak to you.
Forget yourself… do not be self-centered! Let him tell you how he loves you, and prove to you that he is real.
Silence in your soul means a gentle attention to God. It means turning away from your own person, but towards him. It means looking at him… listening to him.
God speaks silently. God speaks in your heart. But if your heart is noisy and chattering, you will not hear!
Every ordinary thing in your life is God’s love to you: your home… your work… the clothes you wear… the air you breathe… the food you eat… the friends you delight in… the flowers under your feet…
All these are God’s blessings tossed down on you! All these things say only one thing: “See how I love you.”
God asks only one thing… That you will treat him as someone real, not as someone not existing.
He is your friend… talk to him now.
