I’ve been trying to be more intentional about listening to God, on the premise that He’s communicating a lot more than what I’m hearing: not necessarily detailed instructions or revelations, but gentle course corrections or quietly saying “I love you.”
Over at Something About the Joy, Ginny Jaques has some thought-provoking posts on the subject.
- “It’s Not About Sofas” particularly challenged me, with the idea that maybe what God has to say is something other than what I’m listening for—and what if I miss it?
- “An Amazing Truth” warmed my heart with the efforts God makes to remind us of His love.
- And “A Whisper in the Wind” finishes the series with some thoughts on “But how does God speak? Is it always specific?”
In the busyness leading up to Christmas, may we hear God whisper, “Be still, and know that I am God.” And may we obey, to the renewal of our spirits and to the blessing of those around us.
