A line from author Brennan Manning has been sitting with me this week. It goes like this:
"In prayer we slow down to a human tempo and make time to listen."
I agree with this sentiment in some ways, but I would disagree on this key point. I don't feel that we should slow down to 'human' tempo, but rather to God's tempo. The tempo of us as humans seems to be way too frantic, and God's time always seems to be unrushed.
The season of Lent urges us to slow down and to make time to listen for the voice of God.
2 Peter 3:9 - "The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think."
What tempo are you finding yourself in at this stage in your life?
