I'm Back!

Galatians 5:16 (NLT) So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives.

Did you hear it?  Did you feel it?

The whisper.

I did.  Some of you did too.  One friend told me she oddly woke up one morning praying for me, not knowing why.  After reading Seeds of Scripture she felt a voice telling her to reach out.  She and I rarely see each other now that our boys are in college, so she thought “Why not?”

As I read her invitation to walk, I felt a voice say “You should go”.  My mood said “no”, the murky weather said “no”, but the voice urged me to say “yes”.  Before I could change my mind I was out the door.

God whispered several times this week, guiding me out of my darkness.  Because I chose to comply even when I didn’t want to, I am feeling much lighter.  Thanks for all your prayers, hugs and words of encouragement.

You may wonder about these whispers.  For me, God’s voice is something between a gut feeling and words in my mind.  It’s a voice I can feel rather than one I actually hear.  Does that make sense?  And, because I am stubborn, it usually repeats itself persistently and often from multiple sources - a conversation, an article, a song, a circumstance or a sermon.

I’ve learned to recognize the way God speaks to me.  It may be different for you.  He’ll speak in a way you can best hear Him.  As with any relationship, it takes time to get to know one another.  We could all benefit from following His guidance.

God is still speaking.  Can you hear Him? (tweet this)

Like a productive garden, a rich relationship should be tended regularly.  Get a reminder to plant His Word in your heart:  Follow me on Twitter @Cathy_Chung or subscribe at Seeds of Scripture.
