Hearing God

These past few weeks, my heart has been aching to know more of God, to sense Him and to hear Him. There are four keys to hearing God: 1. Be still and quiet your mind, 2. Look for a vision, 3. Allow spontaneous thoughts that uplifts you, 4. Write it down as God speaks to you.

I have a hard time sitting still and allowing the Presence of God to guide me sometimes, but tonight, I read a profound poem by Helen Mallicoat. It helps me to sense God in a tangible way.


I was regretting the past
And fearing the future.
Suddenly, my Lord was speaking:

"My name is I Am." He paused.
I waited. He continued,
"When you live in the past,
With its mistakes and regrets,
It is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I Was.

"When you live in the future,
With its problems and fears,
It is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I Will Be.

"When you live in this moment,
It is not hard. I am here.
My name is I Am."


Take a moment and drink it in. I am.
