Quiet Conversation

Recently, I had a conversation with some friends. We were talking about how the Lord speaks to us through nature. Remember my thing with butterflies? The Lord sends me butterflies to show me His presence. One of the other girls sees rainbows during significant times of her life. The Lord teaches Brock through trees.

I've always known that the Lord speaks through His Word, other people, and circumstances. I'm learning now that He speaks through nature as well. One of my friends commented that this conversation with the Lord is going on all the time, but we don't listen. We are conversing on myspace or whatever. This conversation requires quiet, peace, and most of all, awareness. It's that still, small voice. "Be still and know that He is God." Psalm 46:10.

How is the Lord speaking to you?
