Day 62: Jesus Calling

I am reading a book called, "Jesus Calling" that my good friend Katherine Sloan sent me. She said it had really spoken to her over the last year, and so often seemed to meet her in the midst of whatever she was going through.

I absolutely love it, and would highly recommend it to you if you are looking for a brief, but meaty devotional type of book.

As a general rule, I'm not a fan of devotionals (which is kind of funny considering how many times people have told me I should write one!)

But I like this one because each day is a paragraph or two, written in the voice of God. And though I know a human being wrote the words, I feel like I am actually hearing God speak over me when I read it.

There is something so absolutely comforting in feeling that the God of the Universe is speaking directly to you. And when it happens, you can feel it, somewhere down deep inside where the depth of your soul collides with the gift of His Spirit.

I wanted to share with you a post from a couple of days ago. This is from Jesus Calling, June 20.

"I speak to you continually. My nature is to communicate, though not always in words. I fling glorious sunsets across the sky, day after day after day. I speak in the faces and voices of loved ones. I caress you with a gentle breeze that refreshes and delights you. I speak softly in the depths of your spirit, where I have taken up residence.

You can find me in each moment, when you have eyes that see and ears that hear. Ask my Spirit to sharpen your spiritual eyesight and hearing. I rejoice each time you discover my presence. Practice looking and listening for me during quiet intervals Gradually you will find Me in more and more of your moments. You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me above all else."

The God of the Universe, my God, speaks to me continually. The same God who spoke me into existence. Who spoke the world into motion. He speaks.

I find that my deepest sorrow comes from knowing I am just too freaking busy to listen to His voice.

All that to say, I need a hearing aid. Jesus is Calling.

  1. We can have friends who speak to us we can have associates you speaks to us, but there is nothing more comforting then getting a word for Almighty GOD! AMEN
