The swooshing sounds of cars passing by grew fainter. The clock’s ticking dimmed and my eyes closed. There was just me. Words formed in my mind and I shared them. No one spoke in return, but I sensed I’d been heard. I praised the Creator of the World and shared my thoughts with Him. There was no earth shattering pleas for understanding or help. Just simple thoughts lifted to Him.
I opened my eyes. The sense of serene peace was gone. It wasn’t completely gone but it didn’t seem the same somehow. I’d never left the room but somehow I’d been transported to a different place. That wasn’t possible. Or was it?
My eyes closed again, but it wasn’t the same as before. Where ever I’d been was gone. The sense of peace I now felt wasn’t exactly the peace I’d just experienced.
We don’t have to go to an actual church building to converse with God. God is everywhere and you can talk to Him anytime. You just have to shove the sights and sounds to the background and allow your focus to drift towards Him. You’ll know when you’ve arrived. Spend a few moments, or a long time. But do it often. You’ll be glad you did.
Have you spent some time with Him lately? How do you do it? Share your thoughts.
