I don't sit still much anymore. My relationship with God expresses itself with action these days, rather than stillness. When in high school, I spent many hours on the ocean bluffs across from our home, just drinking in God, and I always left with His strength within. There was a time I took frequent long walks with God and filled myself with the quiet awe that comes from contemplating a sunset or the stars.
It's harder to sit still now; there are so many demands on my time. Even so, I feel a deep call from God to do just that: to just BE. To put aside the prayer books, the reading, the laundry lists of prayer requests that make up my devotional time, and just BE with Him. Drink in His presence. Come to Him with nothingness. Let my contemplative heart come out.
Saint Francis of Assisi said: "When we pray to God we must be seeking nothing - nothing."
It's time to practice being... nothing.
