Once when I was responsible for my grandchild's bedtime and naptime. I discovered a practice that almost guaranteed a successful time of rest. When I held him with his head near my heart, he always became quiet and relaxed. We figured out that the earliest memories he had were of his mother's heartbeat. When everything else seemed frightening, the rhythm of my heartbeat gave him confidence, comfort, and peaceful rest.

Today, how do we intend to hear the heartbeat of God? What will we do to make it possible for us to hear God's comforting, peacegiving, and guiding voice?
