The Great Vacuum Cleaner

It is in silence and stillness and waiting that God comes. A vacuum is always needed for God to fill—no vacuum, no visitation! We must create a vacuum by creating a time of no-thing and then wait in stillness. And God is the great vacuum Cleaner. He comes into our momentary vacuum of activity and mental work, and from that place he vacuums clean our hearts, minds, and spirits. He cleans us of the dust, lint, and crust of our lives so that He may enter more crevices of our soul and that we may be more holy and happy in living.
