Playing with purpose

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

Thanksgiving Day Ten

A high five, palm slapping, “alright GOD!” Is my hearts dance of thanksgiving. Thanksgiving for all the ways that GOD speaks to me.

It occurs to me that many of the times that I have said GOD is silent, has little to do with silence. I have found that GOD is never silent, I just don’t always listen. This is something the Lord is driving home within me.

I have never been alone. I have just been bereft of wisdom to identify all the ways GOD speaks to me. Sometimes are easier than others, because they are more familiar to me. Sometimes His voice flies over my head, because it comes in a way I do not recognize, or I do not like. But, even within audible silence, GOD speaks.

I’m discovery through the maturity of my walk when my heart is tuned to hear; the conversation with GOD is a virtual bombardment. Revelation, comfort, chastisement, love, mirth, judgment and more. GOD speaks!

I want to be found listening. I want all that GOD longs to bestow in and on me. The hundred-fold in this life is so much more than the bling. It is so much more, even absent the bling, bling. That’s a lesson worth learning and a conversation worth hearing. Thank you, Lord!
