Right there and then I decided my Mary moment was here and I was going to grasp it with both hands. As I immersed myself in prayer and fellowship with God something happened that has never happened before in my 33 years as a Christian. A total peace and love encompassed and washed over the situation, over myself and even over the room I was sitting in. I sat pouring out my heart to the Lord and then sat listening in awe of the experience. I knew in that moment not only would my daughter get the job but I felt His tangible presence in the room with me.
As I sit down today pouring out my heart to the Lord I am struck by the beauty of the silence surrounding me. I have an overwhelming feeling of peace and tranquillity that really surpasses any natural understanding. Psalm 46:10 ‘Be still, and know that I am God’.
When my daughter phoned a few days later it came as absolutely no surprise to me when she told me that she had got the job. I realised that God often wants to get our attention and wants to share His heart with us, but we are happy to fill our life and time with distractions (often good things) that seduce us into thinking ‘we've done our bit’ and we can then sit back on our laurels.
Here is a challenge, next time you feel prompted to sit down in His presence determine to do it regardless of how busy you are because I would not swap that day for any other I have ever experienced in the whole of my life, Your experience may not be the same as mine, but I guarantee that if your ears are attentive to that still, quiet voice it is because God has something to say to you. I urge you to not miss out on the blessing that I nearly did!!
