Sometimes, of course, when we enter into God’s presence we will not find ourselves speechless. We will be ready to speak to him and to hear what he has to say to us. Usually he will respond in quiet inspirations, and in the silent movement of our heart. His voice will fill our soul with consolation and courage.
So if you are able to speak to the Lord, do it with words of prayer. Praise him, Listen to him.
But if, no matter how full your heart is with things you wish to say to God, your voice still fails you, stay right where you are in his presence. He will see you there, and bless your silence. And perhaps he will reach down and take you by the hand, walking with you, chatting with you, leading you gently through the garden of his love. Whatever happens, it is a great grace.
Thank you for all the gifts of this day, for all the moments of this day when you took me by the hand, walked with me, chatted with me, and led me gently through the garden of your love. Amen.
