The more I am pulled in multiple directions and realize that I am not up for the task, the more these times of reading my Bible (listening to God) and praying (talking to God) renew me in steady streams of grace. It is like water falling over the cliffs at Middle Falls (pictured here) in Burgess Falls State Park in Tennessee. How spiritually refreshing it is to listen to God and talk to God!
