Some Days … Just Listen …



<photo by me … Shhh … just listen>

Today is a scream into your pillow type of day.   I am not confident or responsible for anything I may write or say. I feel empty.

As I stare at the keyboard hoping to be inspired, nothing.  I feel nothing.  Where are you God?

He is still present.   I am the one who is not.

My spirit is neither graceful nor grateful today. A picture of Godliness I am not.

Such an un Christian thing to say!  Really?  

What a misconception that once we have accepted Christ, we then live in a 24/7 hour state of blissful Godliness?   <we are still flawed humans after all>

Do you have days like this?  I know I am not alone on this issue!

What is happening during these times?  Is there a message that He is trying to tell us?

Perhaps He wants us to stop talking, reading and writing … and simply listen to what He is trying to tell us.

In other words … unplug from the world and plug in to Him.  ‘Let His word pour down like rain …’

Hence, a song He placed into my heart this morning … ‘Word of God Speak’ by Mercy Me …

“I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say,

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak”

Perhaps the words that I didn’t have today was exactly what He wanted me to share.   At times, simply Listen to His Wisdom. 

Be blessed and listen to the song below  ‘Word of God Speak’ by Mercy Me.

Pressing Toward Joy thought of the day:  Take the time and listen.  Unplug!

  1. This is “right on! “. Yes, we all need to unplug from time to time and listen. Yes there are days we don’t feel like praying or thanking God. We are human after all. He expects us to obey Him , and not always like it , just like any parent.
    You are real, AL ! That’s what I love about you

  2. AL, you speak to me where I am or have been every day with your blog. I love that song by Mercy Me and needed it today. As Harriett has told us many times, God wants us to know that He is all we need and all we want! Prayers are always with you! Keep on blogging! You are a beautiful instrument of God!
