When I was a little girl, my Dad's whistle calling me home for dinner, or for any other reason, was a welcome sound. As I played outside during winter, spring, autumn or summer, my ears were always listening for that beloved sound. I knew when I heard it, I was to yell, "Coming!" and then I was to go directly home.
How about you? Are your ears listening for God's call to you to enter His Presence? When He calls to you, do you immediately call out, "I'm coming!"? Do you then do what you said you'd do, dropping everything to enter His Presence - no matter what He wants?
Let's practice listening for Him and His call - whether He actually whistles for you, calls your name or if He speaks to you in a still small voice within your heart.
When I whistle to them, they will come running, for I have redeemed them.
Heavenly Father, please help me attune my ears and heart to You. Please help me run with willing feet into Your Presence to discover what it is You have for me to be or do. In Jesus' name. Amen.
PLEASE NOTE: TODAY BEGINS YEAR FOUR OF REFLECTIONS. DURING THE PAST THREE YEARS, OVER 400 WEEKLY REFLECTIONS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE BLOG AND SENT TO YOUR INBOX WEEKLY.
NOW BEGINS A DIFFERENT PACE - ON THE FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH, A REFLECTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY SENT TO YOUR INBOX, AS USUAL ON THE THREE REMAINING MONDAYS, A SCRIPTURE AND IMAGE WILL BE SENT. THAT WILL BE THE NEW PATTERN EACH MONTH.
I KNOW THE POWER THAT GOD'S WORD HAS IN OUR LIVES. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE PRESENTED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. LET'S ASK GOD TO CHANGE US THROUGH HIS WORD. I ALSO HOPE YOU ENJOY THE IMAGES FROM MY CAMERA. I KNOW THAT I THOROUGHLY HAVE ENJOYED WRITING REFLECTIONS....AND THE PRESENTATION OF SCRIPTURE WITH AN IMAGE HAS BEEN A DREAM OF MINE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS.
MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND CONTINUE TO GUIDE YOU!
