Thankful For His Voice

taking time to stop & smell the roses

I just miss it sometimes and it frustrates me to no end. I want to hear it above all else: above my doubts, above the world, above my need to control. But, sometimes His is not the loudest voice; it is that constant, never changing word that I already know and He has no reason to yell at me.

I am thankful that He doesn't lose patience with me, but continues to speak into my life through His Word and the Holy Spirit.

When I do hear, even if I am slow to hear, I am thankful for God's sovereignty in my life. My spirit soars when I see how He works things out for the good even when I am slow to get with the plan. To know that His plan will not be thwarted gives me peace when I am frustrated.

You shall walk after the Lord your God and [reverently] fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him and cling to Him. Deuteronomy 13:4

And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 28:2
