The group leader I have come to respect and seek for godly counsel admitted that she hadn't read the entire book. And then Jesus sat down with us.
The book and notebook lay quietly on the table. No notes were taken; none were needed.
Dear Reader, have you unexpectedly found yourself in the middle of a holy moment, drenched in the Holy Spirit? You had an agenda, a goal, but the Lord had something else in mind.
Much later than expected, I left our meeting, blessed more than words could say. This time, I listened when the Lord said to keep my mouth shut (mostly). And then He opened the treasure of my new friend to me.
In all honesty, Dear Reader, frequently I'm not very good at paying attention to when I should speak and when I should keep silent. Sitting in His presence that evening showed me the kind of blessings He has for us when we hit the pause button.
Have you sat in the Lord's presence lately? How did He bless your obedience?
