Yet even with all our labour and time-saving devices, it seems we still have difficulty managing our time effectively.
Maybe it frightens us a little to call a halt to our constant round of activities, in order to provide some quiet time for ourselves.
If we could only stop the flurry of our life occasionally, it might give God a chance to communicate with us during a period when we would be more receptive to what our God might want to speak to us about.
Many might question how such a conversation can happen! It may well occur during the early morning, when all is quiet, or late at night, when we look back over our day?
Sometimes our God speaks to us through the words and actions of others or, as has happened in the past to many people, through the words of Scripture.
For a love affair to work effectively, there needs to be two way communication. Being at peace within ourselves will enable us to speak with, and also receive messages from, our loving God.
