Listening for God in Everyday Life
Does God speak?
Perhaps a better question is: Are we listening?
In Listening for God in Everyday Life, author, speaker, and psychologist Joseph White shows us how to listen for God in this noisy, chaotic world. God is speaking to us all the time, but we have to learn to hear his voice. Drawing on his personal experience, Joseph reveals the means God uses to speak directly to our hearts. Some of these may even surprise you! They include:
Silence - Gifts and Talents - Scripture
Creation - Humor - Tradition
Art - Liturgy - Saints
Struggle - Children
Relationship - People in Need
When we learn to hear it, God’s voice opens our hearts to his love, deepening our relationship with the one who knows us better than we know ourselves.
