He speaks in the quiet

Seasons in our life come and go then they come back around again.  Every time we take the time to meet with God through His Bible there is a power there.  He wants to converse with us – but how much time do we really take and sit down and listen.

Our pastor challenged us with the amount of Social Media we partake in several months ago.  I had already cut out Facebook, Twitter, Instagram before his message.  I had grown so tired of the stuff I was reading on there.  And yes, this post will hit Facebook and there will be a few who may not want to see this pop up in their feed as well.  Weeks before the primaries in Georgia, I had kicked the FoxNews habit I have had for years!

It’s great to be free from the junk that was filling my mind and my time!  I have found a bit of freedom.

I mentioned power in the Word of God.  That’s true.  Everyday I pick up my Bible and read and those words come to mind just as I begin to read, “There is power in the Word of God.” I’m reading right now like I did when I was a new Christian.

My favorite spot right now is on the deck behind the house.  I read, pray, and listen.  Many times while listening I hear the birds and I am reminded that He takes care of the birds – how much more will he take care of us.

We all have our moments.  Moments when we are on top of the world, so to speak, when it comes to faith and believing.  There are times we find ourself running from our greatest fears or falling to some sin that just can’t seem to be overcome.  Then we hear the voice of the Lord, like Elijah did in I Kings 19:13, “What are you doing here?”  No matter where you may find yourself today, remember there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ, Jesus.  If you find yourself hearing His voice asking that question… answer Him.  He is asking for a reason.  There is another place He wants you to be.

I believe every word he said to be true.  I believe that Jesus came to love me… just as much as he loves you!  I love to pick through my collection of music.  I rode the bicycle on the trainer tonight to The Kry.  I had to get off the bike and get on my knees and thank Jesus for intervening in my life.  Without him, I know, life wouldn’t have any meaning whatsoever.  Take a moment to listen to this song and read the lyrics below as you listen.

It all became clear to me
The day I believed it’s what is true
He was nailed to the tree
Cause I needed a Savior I needed love
Why would I be silent or ashamed
To sing about the one Who took my place

I believe in God and the Son He sent
That He came and He died and He’s risen again
Every word He said Every promise is true
I believe it…I believe it…

This I’ll sing loud and clear
As long as I’m breathing
My whole life through
While the world spins and whirls
No other reason to live at all

You may disagree but that’s OK
Cause I don’t really care what they may say
It’s like a fire burning inside that keeps
burning burning burning

I believe in God and the Son He sent
That He came and He died and He’s risen again
Every word He said Every promise is true
I believe it…I believe it…

I believe in God and the Son He sent
That He came and He died and He’s coming again
Every word He said Every promise is true
I believe it…I believe it…
