Making space

“Only God can put Scripture inside. But reading sacred text can put it on your heart, and then when your heart breaks, the holy words will fall inside.”*

“Don’t manipulate God; just receive.  Communion with Him isn’t something you institute.  It’s like sleep.  You can’t make yourself sleep, but you can create the conditions that allow sleep to happen.”**

 

*an oft-quoted rabbi 

**from Prayer by Richard Foster
