I awakened in the pitch black darkness of night and glanced at the clock for the time. 3:33.

The Day My Clothes Spoke to Me

Posted by: | Comments (1)

closetA new year. A new opportunity. A new day. A new beginning. Ah, the inspiration of it!

I spent part of New Year’s Eve cleaning out my clothes’ closet. I took everything out of my closet and laid the stuff in stacks around my room. Then I began. Toss. Keep. Give away. Store in a different place. Reorganize. Somehow the arrival of the New Year beckoned me to start over again.  To think in new ways. To look for new strategies.

Magazine articles about decluttering and organization called to me.

I was in a ruthless mood. If I didn’t love it, it went no matter how much I wondered if it might come back into style in a year or if it might fit me better later.

Tuning into the Voice of God, pt. 2

Posted by: | Comments (3)

listeningtogodsvoiceHaving been in ministry for more than 26 years, I can’t count the number of times someone has asked me how they can hear the voice of God. On the other hand, I probably couldn’t count the number of times I have listened to believers tell me about how they heard God on a subject when it was so obvious to me that the voice they had heard was not God’s. And certainly I have wrestled at times to discern what God was saying.

Is it really that complicated? Doesn’t God want us to be able to hear Him? We often believe that God wants to speak to us but feel totally inept at knowing what to do in a given situation. How then do we hear the voice of God?

Tuning into the Voice of God

Posted by: | Comments (8)

communicationGod, the author of communication, speaks in a million different ways. We, as His people, have to learn to listen to His voice. One of the sweet ways that I have learned to hear God is by tuning in to what I hear “in my Spirit” as I awaken in the mornings.
