(This was written in January, 2010, but
the message is for EVERY day!)

We had a snow storm last night, and
still into the morning. We will have
more off and on throughout
the day. It is beautiful to see
and to watch as the flakes float out
of Heaven and into our lives, and as
they gather together as friends on
our lawns.

As I have been watching this phenomenon
and it truly is one, here in the
south!), I am reminded of God's glory.
It is everywhere we look, if we will
but open our eyes to it. Recognition
is sometimes difficult for us.
What may seem glorious to one is
seen as a danger, or a threat to
another. I see the beautful whiteness
laying all around...someone else
may see an obstacle to getting
on with things for the day. I see it
as a chance to stay in and have some
respite. To take it easy, enjoy my home,
to catch up on tasks that need to be
done; to take the time to be with God.

I started today by reading Oswald
Chambers. He was focused on 1 Samuel,
from the 3rd chapter. It was about
how Samuel was afraid to tell Eli
the vision God had given him. It was,
after all, a condemnation of Eli, for
his unfaithfulness to be obedient to
God's will. He had allowed his sons
to be unholy, to be defiled, and to
steal and plunder the storehouse
of God.

But Samuel had heard the Lord's voice.
At first he thought it was Eli calling
him, but eventually he heard 'the Voice'.
He knew who it was. And he was fearful
of what he heard, though he was obedient.

Do you hear God's voice? Do you even
want to, or are you fearful of what
he may tell you as well? I think we
all are, but oh, what a wonderful
voice He has! And with the hard
things come the sweet things. He
loves us, and He loves to tell us so.
When He is hard, it is for our good;
not for harm.

Oswald said, 'Speak, Lord'. Oh, I
want to say this too. And even more,
I want to hear His voice. I want to be
one He talks to, who He shares His
thoughts with, and then one who
will do as He tells me to. I desire
complete fellowship with Him, and I
wish to see and hear Him in the world
around me. I need to be able to discern
His voice. And I can do that only
by reading His Word, by learning of
Him, by literally becoming closer to
Him than I can even imagine. Then there
will be no doubt who is speaking to me.
And I will have no reservation about
answering.

'Speak, Lord'.....and I will hear your
voice. I pray you will ask Him to speak
to you as well. What an awesome God
we serve.

Blessings!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
