The burning bush

Being willing to pause for communion with God brings needed guidance into our lives.

In the Bible we read that while Moses was caring for his father-in-law's sheep he "came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb." There he saw a burning bush that the fire did not consume. As he turned aside to see, God called to him, and he replied, "Here am I." Then God told Moses, "Put off thy shoes from off thy feet," Ex. 3:1–5. for he was standing on holy ground.

While we might agree theoretically that God's omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience fill all space, in the rush and turmoil of our days we may not act as though it was true. We may not always take time to notice the figurative burning bush in our lives and turn aside to listen. But God is constantly speaking to us, and we can learn to hear His voice.
