God speaks to us in many ways.  Sometimes the Holy Spirit, maybe through the beauty that surrounds us or the whisper of the wind and even a good friend.  He is always near.  Are we listening?  Do we only listen to what we want to listen too??  If we keep ourselves in the state of grace we will hear Him more often.   If our lives are full of sin it makes it difficult for Him to get his message through to us.  Pray and confess your sins and He will be with you always.
