Thoughts for the Journey from Bill Myers

an author and film producer, Bill Myers’s work has won over 70 national and
international awards including the C.S. Lewis Honor Award. His books and videos,
which include Eli and McGee and Me, have sold 8 million
copies. His most recent book, The Jesus Experience – Journey Deeper into the
Heart of God,
explores how he went from a burned-out evangelical to
someone head-over-heels in love with his Creator.
I fell in love with my wife by
listening and talking deeply with her. She fell in love with me because she has
no taste (but that’s another matter). 
Falling in love with God, or re-falling
in love, is the same principle. I talk to Him through prayer, praise and
singing. I listen to Him mostly through His word . . . but not quickly or
superficially. I didn’t fall in love with my wife that way. Instead of plowing
through the Bible in a year, I’ll spend time each morning reading just a few
verses, chewing on them, meditating on them, sometimes discussing them with
Him. In our hurried culture, this gives my soul time to hear, understand and
adore Him.

“Be still and know that I am God . . .” Psalm 46:10
