Devotions from Judy’s heart

As you know after waiting over a month my new computer came when I was not at home to receive it. I missed out so made a point to be home the next day when Fed Ex came again.  So often we miss what God is saying to us as we are “not home” in the sense of listening , being so  preoccupied with  other things. It may be that we are  sick or depressed or just overwhelmed with pressures, but we mustn’t let that keep us from being alert to His voice.  I have to pray almost daily to be attentive to hear His voice in my ordinary life. Cardinal Basil Hume said, “Each of us needs an opportunity to be alone, and silent, to find space in the day or in the week, just to reflect and to listen to the voice of God that speaks deep within us. Our search for God is only our response to (God’s) search for us. (God) knocks at our door, but for many people their lives are too preoccupied for them to be able to hear.” God may speak to us through His Word, events, nature, prayer, people, news etc.and may we be attentive and alert to hear!
