desiring to listen

"Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance"
(Isaiah 55:2b)

I desire to be a woman who listens to God.


Seeking only Him.
Maintaining my focus.

Keeping my eyes and
my gaze locked on Him.
Willing my heart to beat in tandem with His.

Allowing Him to strengthen
and supply.

I draw fortification through the linking
of my eyes with His glorious countenance.

I feel the oneness of His ministering Spirit in
 the depths of  my needy soul.

Like a spring rain, He drenches me
in refreshing abundance.

Bestowing an extra measure of grace.
Sweet whispers of mercy.

A double portion of His mighty touch.

His presence cascades over me
like a mighty downpour.

And I overflow.

Puddles of blessings.
Splashes of glory.
Drops of His radiant splendor.


I am seeking.

Oh, Lord, I am listening.

I have been thinking about this myself just this evening. I was thinking how much closer I desire to be to Father and what it takes to get there. I thought about my prayer life and how much closer I can be to Him as I draw close to Him in prayer and also in reading His Word and meditating more on Him. He is drawing me close. I love Him so.

Have a Blessed Lord's Day friend,

I need to pray for help in listening - I think I'm afraid of what I might hear - silly, huh?

Barbara said...

Such good meat Beth, thank you and yes we all need some extra help in listening, taking time to pray and then to listen to what our heavenly Father has to say to us.
Hugs and have a great day, Barbara

Listening....I think that might be one of the hardest things to do.

Can you tell when God is talking to you?

Love, love, love this!!! Thank you for sharing Beth. I've been off line for quite some time and just getting back to blogging. I'm glad to come by and visit with you and hear the sharing of your heart in the Lord.

This post blessed me especially because I've been hearing Mark 9:7

Praying for you and your family this moment. Love you.
