“In the morning, LORD, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.” ~Psalm 5:3~

Father, thank you for intervening in my life and allowing me to have a personal relationship with you. Thank you for your love for me today and forever. Thank you for the blessings you’ve given me and my family. Help us use those blessings to bless others. May I live a life of true joy as I see you at work around me today! In Jesus’ name. Amen. -~Ron Moore~

40 Day Sugar Fast…Day 17

DAY 17 — Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Don’t shoot off your mouth or speak before you think. Don’t be too quick to tell God what you think he wants to hear. God‘s in charge not you – the less you speak, the better. Ecclesiastes 5:2

“Hearing God’s voice has become the singular quest of my heart, the sole pursuit that alone satisfies the great longings of my heart. I strongly advocate for a prayer life that is comprised mostly of silence. It’s a great delight to talk to God, but it’s even more thrilling when He talks to us. I’ve discovered that He has more important things to say than I do. Things don’t change when I talk to God; things change when God talks to me. When I talk, nothing happens; when God talks, the universe comes into existence.” Bob Sorge, Secrets of the Secret Place

Is hearing from the Lord the singular quest of your heart? I’m not there yet, if I’m honest. I have the tendency to read a verse or two and then tell God (and others) all about it. However, I want to learn to be a better listener. I want to learn to sit for a long time with the Lord in His quiet and calming Presence, and let Him transform (not only my figure, but) my life.

What was your main take away from today’s reading?

40 Day Sugar Fast

***************************************************************************

“Things don’t change when I talk to God; things change when God talks to me. When I talk, nothing happens; when God talks, the universe comes into existence.”

I live alone now. So I have plenty of alone and quiet time on my hands. I do make it a point, almost daily, to spend quiet time, or as I like to call it, time to ‘just be’. Is it always with God, no. Is it always quiet, no. I have a mediation app I like to use to help empty my head of all the stuff clogging it. My go to in the afternoon is a calming guided prayer meditation that really helps put me in a calm quiet state. Afterwards, I try, (emphasis on try), to hold on to that quiet feeling of calm for a bit longer, ‘listening’ for what God has to say.

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

Jeremiah 33:3

What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

My Return

Roadtripped it back ‘home’ to Chincoteague yesterday. The days are ticking down to Jim’s third Angelversary, and there’s no place I’d rather be then here. Was up before the sun……can you say soul stroll!?!? 😄💛☀️

And in a world offering countless difference perspectives, there is one place that people can find truth. (John 8:26)
