I Answer His Call

To anyone who has been following these posts on Lectio Divina, I offer this suggestion.  Rather than reading about Lectio right now, why don't we drop everything and practice it?  Even if we only have a few minutes, we can pray.  If you need a scripture reading for this, I've copied a few below, so you don't even have to leave this screen.  Or maybe you have your own right at hand.

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no fruit, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights." (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

"Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it so much as dawned on man what God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Corinthians 2:9) 

"No test has been sent you that does not come to all men. Besides, God keeps his promise. He will not let you be tested beyond your strength.  Along with the test he will give you a way out of it so that you may be able to endure it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)
