Where is your happy place?

Which one is closest to home? Maybe you have a she shed or a greenhouse filled with flowers and maybe even a chair to sit on and relax for a minute.

What are we going to do?

Let’s just take a few minutes to sit and listen and see if God has something He wants to say to us.

That’s it? Yup! That’s it.

And I know some of you may not think you can hear God. But if you just sit still for a moment, God knows your intention and if anyone can help you hear God better, it’s God.

So, don’t stress. Nope, just take a few minutes and be still. 

If nothing else, it’s a nice break, right? ?

What are your distractions?

For me, I always feel like I should be doing something, so I’m usually like a hamster on a treadmill chasing my tail all day long.

But you know what,  listening for God’s voice is doing something! 

In fact, listening for God is probably the most important thing we could do all day.

What steals your time?
It may be something that isn’t even true.

While you are being still,

don’t worry if you don’t hear anything. 

You’re not wasting time whether you’re learning how to hear God for the first time or you’ve been listening to Him for years and you’re up for anything that will help you hear Him better. 

It’s not up to you to come up with something.

If God has something to say to you, it’s up to Him to communicate it to you, right?!

So, just enJOY these few minutes of stillness

and be willing to receive.

Do this, this right here will help you hear God better!

Sometimes not being willing to receive has been my biggest problem. 

There I am. I might even be reading my Bible or a devotional. I’m aiming to hear God, but I may not be ready to hear what He has to say. 

Or, I may not be expecting to hear anything from Him. 

And God’s a gentleman. He won’t force anything on us, even His words. 

Can you imagine
God having something really cool He wants to say, 
and there I am with my fingers in my ears? ?

God wants us to hear Him better.

In John 10:27-28, He promises 

“My sheep hear my voice, 
and I know them, 
and they follow me.” (KJV)

Even if some of us are just learning how to hear God

and don’t hear anything as we spend time sitting quietly with Him, we can learn to feel His presence.

And that alone is super sweet.

When we spend time with God,

I think it’s common to want more. 

Every so often, God reminds of of a thought I had one day: 

I don’t want get up off the couch five minutes too soon
and miss something really good that God had to say. 

I don’t want that for you either!  ☺️

Sometimes, all we need to do is make a habit of making space for Him and before we know it, we’re talking like two old friends who have lots of history together.

God can do that because He’s always been there for us even when we haven’t realized it.

Dear Sweet Jesus,

No matter where we are
in relationship with You,
we are here
because we want You
to help us to hear You better.

Help us?
