I’m Listening

“Speak, for your servant is listening.” I Samuel 3: 10 The book of I Samuel opens during the time of the Judges. Chapter 3 begins by letting us know a little about the spiritual climate: “…In those days the word of the LORD was rare; there were not many visions.” I Samuel 3: 1 Perhaps The people didn’t hear from God because they didn’t want to hear from God. It was a low time spiritually for God’s chosen people. They chose to go their own way.  When they found themselves in a jam, they came back to seek Him out and ask for His …

Sometimes A Push

Sometimes I claim I want to hear God, I ask and pray but yet after many tears, prayers and even some bargaining with God I still don’t have it. I still can’t hear. The problem is…me. I know God is still there just a He has always been, He continues to speak.  I have just moved away; moved away to the point that I cannot hear.

Do You Hear Those Wings?

Listening for God’s Voice

As I listen to the birds singing every morning, I wish I could distinguish one bird from another. I identify the honking geese as they fly over the lake. And I hear the woodpecker, as he raps for his meal. I can see the difference between a robin and a sparrow, but I can’t tell them apart by their songs. My husband Dan recognizes the voices of many birds. He knows the robin’s sweet song, and he is familiar with the squawking blue jay. He even points out the mimicking mockingbird. I’m learning a few tips from him. Recognition. I’ve …

Can You Get To the Phone? It’s God

A subject that has become near and dear to me is that of accomplishing God’s will for your life.  So many Christians live on this earth without ever realizing their instilled potential, something the Lord intended to be used as they carry out His work.  And, let me tell you, it takes a lot of faith (and patience!) to keep doing what needs to be done in order for His will to be fulfilled.  These devotions are coming directly from my own personal experience – just highly abridged – and I hope what I’ve learned can help some of you! …
