Thankful Thursday- The Voice Of God


Today is Thankful Thursday, and I am grateful for another opportunity to praise the Lord. I love Him so very much, and I want to serve Him with all of me, not just some of me. He gave His entire self on the cross for me, not just some of Himself. He is sooooooooo good to me, takes care of me day in, day out. I want to hear His voice always, and to have that happen, I must be obedient. As the song says: Trust, and obey , for there is no other way. I cannot obey only when I choose to, I must obey as He wants me to, which is always. To hear His precious voice, I have to be sin free, and clutter free. The world cannot be all I am listening to, I must clean my ears, eyes, and heart out, and make room to receive the beautiful voice of my Saviour. When His lovely voice falls upon my ears, it is the most wonderful thing I have ever heard, or want to hear. I am Yours Lord, and my true desire is to hear Your voice always. I love having conversations with You.

Beautiful! It's true about not just obeying when we want to-- God calls us to obedience, to do His will above our own-- and like you testify, when we do His will, He blesses us greatly!

Blessings Beloved~

Blessings to you today Denise.

That is one of Caleb's favorite songs to sing, I love hearing him sing the sweet words too...trust and obey.

Thanks for reminding me that to hear His voice, my life must be sin free and clutter free. I am already convicted about posting my 5 ways to celebrate femininity and beauty. (While in some cases, that may BE His voice, I believe that in my case, it should be between Him and me--not me and the whole world. I will be listening to His voice to hear whether to take it off the site, explain, or something else....

That is one of my all--time favorite hymns. Sadly, it's easier to sing than it is to carry out. :(
