The reading yesterday was from the
3rd chapter of Luke:
"The voice of one calling in the desert:
Prepare the way of the Lord!"
Do we hear God's voice? No?
Perhaps it is because we are in the "city",
surrounded by all the noise and cacophony.
John the Baptist and even Jesus himself
withdrew to a quiet place by themselves-
the desert, the mountain, a closed room.
If they had to do this to hear God's voice,
how much more should we?
If we quiet our hearts,
we will hear God speaking to us.
"Be strong, fear not!
Here is Your God!"
He will speak to us of things we need to hear.

listen to Him this Advent season.
I need to hear Him say to me,
"Fear not! Here is Your God! I am with you!"
Proverbs 4 says:
"Keep your heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life."
