Well, BlogFam, I must say that this has been a diverse day in the Lord as it relates to my various worship experiences! LOL!!! And I will not go into all of the particulars - like the lady with the orange mohawk rubbing a washboard in church with a beat down kitchen utensil otherwise known as a whisk. I will NOT go into all of the particulars! NOPE! Do NOT ask me! BUT I will share this......
As I said this morning, I am so amazed at our God. I entitled this post LISTEN! I gave it this title because every space in which I worshiped God on today, I heard a consistent message. There are moments when the Master REALLY wants you to get it! Have you ever been in that situation? Have you ever been at a point along your journey when you KNOW that God must have shared your fears - thoughts - concerns - expectations - secret prayer requests with every preacher on TV, in your church, on the radio, on TBN? I mean, its like they are all saying the same thing. Its like they are sneaking in a comment tailor-made just for you. When that happens, my feelings about the message can go a number of ways but in this season, I AM SO ENCOURAGED and INSPIRED to just TRUST GOD!
Ladies and Gents, if you are seeking an answer from the voice of the genuine inside of you, I want you to know that the Spirit is speaking to YOU BUT YOU have to intentionally position yourself to LISTEN! When I was a girl growing up in Louisiana, there was an old mother of the church who would always say LISTEN, LISTEN! That was her "Amen," if you will. And I know I never forgot it, not just because of her high pitched voice and not just because she said it every Sunday in every sermon. I KNOW I never forgot her plea because her plea called my attention to the voice of the Spirit inside of me and compelled me to LISTEN!
So, as I close this brief Sunday evening reflection, BlogFam, I plead with you to LISTEN! LISTEN! Listen to the most genuine voice you will ever know - the voice of the Holy that lives inside of you. Remove any distractions that would keep you from hearing that voice ever so clearly. AND fall in love with its rhythm - however it flows for you - and prioritize its instructions for it is only when you LISTEN to that voice that you will truly know how to walk out the purpose for which our God has created you.
So, LISTEN. :-)
God Loves You and I Do Too!
