I meet you in the stillness of your soul.  It is there that I seek to commune with you.  A person who is open to My Presence is exceedingly precious to Me.  My eyes search to and fro throughout the earth, looking for one whose heart is seeking Me.  I see you trying to find Me; our mutual search results in joyful fulfillment.

Stillness of soul is increasingly rare in this world addicted to noise and speed.  I am pleased with your desire to create a quiet space where you and I can meet.  Don’t be discouraged by the difficulty of achieving this goal.  i monitor all your efforts and am blessed by each of your attempts to seek My Face.

2 Chronicles 16:9a For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
