Blasphemous Anxiety

When I am still, compulsion (the busyness that Hilary of Tours called "a blasphemous anxiety to do God's work for Him") gives way to compunction (being pricked or punctured.)  That is, God can break through the many layers with which I protect myself, so that I can hear His Word and be poised to listen.
