TODAY I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU…
When was the last time you were quiet?
Quiet in your body, mind, and spirit all at the same time?
Maybe like me years ago, your reality is you crying out to God more often than not.
“Why don’t you hear me?” OR “God, why can’t I hear you?”
If that’s you, I know how frustrated you are.
The good news is you don’t have to stay there.
But if you’re ever going to truly escape momma guilt and be the woman you were created to be, then you have to accept one major truth.
One thing that I ABSOLUTELY know to be true about you.
The voice of God’s TRUTH lives inside of you.
Whether or not you’ve had a major accident like me, you’ve probably struggled with accepting that the Lord speaks to you.
And it’s even harder to believe you can actually hear Him speaking.
Your mind is a crazy place sometimes. I get it.
I know how having kiddos around makes getting in a quiet place really hard! Especially when little hands are reaching under the bathroom door while you’re sitting on the toilet.
Or when your body is tugged on from 5 million directions all at once.
But I can assure you. God really does speak to you.If Jesus lives in you, then the TRUTH lives in you and you just have to learn how to listen… Click To Tweet
AND you don’t need hours and hours of uninterrupted quiet time to hear the voice of God. You just need a few seconds. And once you know what He sounds like, it gets easier to hear him through the noise.
The reality is He is continuously listening AND is constantly speaking to you…
… But with so many loud voices in your head, it can be hard to hear. You will need to ask God to calm your racing thoughts and to speak straight to your heart… in all of your broken, lost, and confusing places.
Like I mentioned yesterday… On my road to recovery, I lost myself. I didn’t have a grasp of who I was and what my purpose here was. I was living in shame and guilt and I found myself being what everyone else said I needed to be.
The fact was that God was already telling me who I was… I just had to learn how to listen…
And not with my mind, but with my spirit.
So now it’s your turn so to hear His quiet voice of TRUTH. Take a few minutes today to get still and quiet. In the car, the bathroom, or wait till the kids are in bed.
Pray and ask Him to speak to you. And then LISTEN!
Jesus said that He is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. Pray with confidence today that He will speak, and then be ready to receive TRUTH from Him. (see John 14:1-7)
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey to freedom in Christ! Tomorrow I’ll be back to walk you through one of the hot button issues that Christians get stuck on. Don’t miss it!
