HE ALONE HEARS OUR WHISPERS IN THE NIGHT, HE ALONE CAN FEEL OUR TEARS, HE ALONE KNOWS ALL OUR SORROWS, HE ALONE KNOWS ALL OUR FEARS.
Usually at night, before I go to bed, I stand on the porch and talk with God. Sometimes He engages, sometimes He is silent, but I always know He is present, listening, intently.
I ask for direction, guidance, nudges, and voices to direct my path. I pray for others, pray for forgiveness, I pray and talk with Him about my growth and what He wishes me to do to help grow His Kingdom.
The other night I was confounded over writing this blog. I admitted to Him I did not know for sure what I was doing or if I was doing what He had directed me to do. We talked about my fears, He asked some pertinent questions, ( ones I already knew in my heart the answer to,) and gave me some things to think on.
Some things I came away with I wanted to share with you.
God “speaks” to all of us, in many different ways. A song, a bird, a person, a hymn, a scripture, a prayer, are just a few of the ways he communicates through the Holy Spirit. To HEAR GOD, requires belief that this happens, just as you believe the sun will rise, the seasons will change or the patterns of life are real.
Belief that you too can communicate with Him is paramount to deepen your relationship with him. Wherever you are silent, you may hear His voice, feel His Presence, sense that He is near.
I ask you not to dismiss these occurrences as they can bring us closer to Him and a richer life in Christ and what God has intended in order for us to serve Him.
I struggled with writing this and told God I was afraid people would think I was nutty. He said, ..”and who counts more than what I think..?
Good question….,my reply of course was, “well, no-one.”
And then He said, ….” then do as I direct you and write. Write about Me. Write about our conversations so that others might experience Me and believe.” Undoubtedly I said, somewhat hesitantly, “I’ll try.” You can imagine His response to the I’ll try thing…..it was a loud but calming, ” You can do it, trust ME.” And so, I am here, writing, to tell you of my conversations with the Almighty. I am here to tell you that He wants to have these with you as well, and Loves you dearly. I am here to tell you God is real, alive and very much with us, always.
I realize I am not the first to retell of such things, nor hopefully will I be the last. This blog is about helping you find Hope, find Peace, find Love, find God. I hope you will take a few minutes of your day to read some of the pieces and leave me a note if you have comments. I do value each of you that read the words I have so freely been given to pass on.
I will end with this scripture as it somehow seems fitting….
Matthew 5:5….”Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
