Listening Close

When I have decisions to make and choices to decide between, I tend to listen with my heart attuned to God more. I seek His direction and try to pay attention to what He is saying.

Do you ever have decisions you have to make and you don't know which way to go? Either way you go would most likely be good, but you must weigh different aspects of the decision to find the best way.

I've been praying about something and I've been listening.

And God gave me a word.

In my devotion book today, this was the first line I read (written as if God were speaking) ...

"When I give you no special guidance, stay where you are."...Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. 

Don't you love it when God speaks and you know without a doubt it was Him?

Is it hard for you to be patient and listen for answers to your questions? When was the last time you heard from God in a direct way?

p.s.  My Weight Watchers weigh in last night was a dismal failure. I gained 2.2 pounds over the last two weeks. I knew I was off track, but it is still frustrating to see those numbers on the scale move in the wrong direction. Here's to a new week of downward spiraling numbers on the scale!

  1. Sometimes I like to think God ALWAYS tells us exactly what to do. And while I do believe His Holy Spirit is truly always there to walk with us and give us discernment, I also think sometimes He just plain lets us make the choice, you know? It's both the beauty and sometimes annoyance of free will. :)

    But I love that He gave you a clear answer! I've heard sooo many good things about Jesus Calling and even have it on my Kindle. I need to start reading it!

  2. I love it when God speaks to me directly. I think He's always speaking, I'm just not always listening.

    Chin up, friend! It was probably just water weight! That's what I always tell myself and I shake the trash so the chocolate wrappers hit the bottom. Can't see it...it didn't happen! LOL

  3. How cool that the Lord gave you that quote just when you needed it, Sherrinda. I hope He gives you the answer to your question soon, but I trust that whenever it comes, it will be the best time for you to receive it.

    Sorry about the weight gain. My number was higher at my Curves weigh-in this month, so I can relate. I blame it on the yummy vanilla bean scones I discovered when I prepared a special tea for my hubby a few weeks back. The delicious things have been leaping into my cart ever since if I get anywhere near my grocery store's bakery section. =)
