One of my favorite things to do after my husband and I married was to lay my head on his chest and listen to his heart. I would quiet myself in order to listen to each beat. With great joy as I listened closely I could measure how far each beat was apart from the other. Often I would lift my head in order to observe if each beat was moving in sync with the rising of his chest and the manner in which he was breathing. This practice for me was not only beautiful and peaceful to watch but also served as a constant reminder of how amazing the Sovereign Father truly is.
This morning as I laid my head on my husband’s chest before he prepared for work, Father gently spoke how important it is for all of us to take time out of the hustle and bustle of life to just spend quality time listening intently to His heart. How often have you heard someone say, I don’t know God’s voice? Or maybe even you have asked how can I hear God more clearly?
The answer to these and many more can be found in taking out quality time to sit in the presence of God and listening closely to the beat of His heart. Is it wisdom that you seek? Is it clarity about your day? Is it direction about which way to go? The answers that you seek can be found nestled in between each beat.
The peace that you crave comes when you rest and allow yourself to move in sync and in tune to His heart beat. Life can be much sweeter. Your joy will last longer than a few hours. Your faith will not automatically deflate at the first sound of bad news all because you have a new desire to live out the rest of your life in sync and in tune with the heart beat of the Sovereign Father.
