Listen… can you hear the whisper of love and grace over your life?

Listen… can you hear the love and joy sung over your life?

Listen… can you hear God inviting you to draw near?


Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.  Jeremiah 33:3


We are what we listen to?  Whose voice is the loudest in our life?

Are we listening to the voice of hope and life?  Versus the voice of doubt and discouragement?

Are we listening to the voice of the One who is creative and wise – who breathed out the stars and counts the hairs we have on our head, who knows the path of lightening and the volume of water in a raindrop? 

Whose voice do we listen to?  Whose voice do we let shape us?  Whose voice defines us?


God is faithful.

Faithful to speak and guide and be personal and near.  He is not far away, but close, interactive.

He is speaking hope and life, wisdom and peace.


Over and over again the Bible records interactions between God and His people.

Over and over again it talks about a God that talks to His friends, that is near, that is personal, that speaks love, that imparts wisdom, that shows the way.


He is the same today, as He will be tomorrow, as He was yesterday. From the beginning God has spoken to His children and desired real relationship with them. He walked in the garden with Adam and Eve and at the end of time Revelation 22:3-4 it says that we will worship God face to face! 

Abraham was called a friend of God.  Moses talked with God face to face in the tabernacle tent and upon Mt Sinai.


He wants to speak you you… and for you to LISTEN.  We recognize God’s voice because we recognize Him, the better we get to know God the more clearly we will recognize His voice.  He is faithful.  He is speaking.  Are we listening?  


"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." John 10:27


Listen… when God says i love you.

Listen… when God says this is the way, walk in it.

Listen… when God says i know you, i have a plan, you belong to me.

Listen – let His words shape you, define you, give life to you.






Five Minute Friday is a feature over at Lisa-Jo Bakers TALES FROM A GYPSY MAMA blog.  i first read about it on my friend Fee’s blog and thought it sounded fun!

Set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.

3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

"To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights, and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, "I am with you," Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail-his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world." David Wilkerson
