I am really bad at sitting still and being quiet but it is difficult to hear God when you're busy. I read about Ten Minute Retreats in Dr Rob Reimer's book, Soul Care, so I decided to try it for myself. I set the timer on my phone so I'm not tempted to keep checking my watch. I shut the door and sit on the floor but you could sit anywhere. Then I talk to God for a minute and just listen to him. My mind often wanders, but I just keep bringing it back to Jesus. Sometimes he tells me stuff, and sometimes not so much. But the practice of just being still and quiet is calming and good for the soul.
