Quiet stillness fills me as I listen
to a voice deep within
a voice, which, beckons and invites
me to a deepening
as I step quietly into this sacred
and familiar place of prayer.
This is a well-known place of the spiritual,
where the connection with a personal God
is all about an intimate moment, a brief encounter in time
where I experience a deep yearning within my heart.
In the stillness of Godís presence I feel his guidance
as I follow his summoning me along a path of interior longing.
I am moved to respond to an invitation,
which calls me to go inward.
As I sit contemplatively waiting for God
to speak to my heart
I am moved by this subtle breeze which invites and
go deep within to find Godís invitation
be birthed anew.
