Time-out

It's Word-Filled Wednesday!!!


I have a noisy life at present. Lots of voices. Tons of influences. All of this is physically, emotionally and spiritually-seeking. Sometimes it's so difficult to remember to put on my earphones--the ones that hear His one and only tune. 

But when the world seems smaller, the tv seems louder and the walls seem closer together than ever before, a timeout with my Papa is what I need the most. When I do this, He restores my soul, guides me to Godly decisions, and shines through me, for His' name's sake.

For His Name's sake, I choose to listen to His voice amidst the hubbub and have-to-dos-and-bes today.

Help me, Father, I pray...in each relationship and with every choice I make. May I trust YOU fully, Lord. You are the One who raised Your Son from the dead. And You are the only One who can restore my soul. Thank You, Lord, that all I have to do is rest in Your power, working like a mighty wind through me. For Your Name and in Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

Oh what a GREAT word today!!

It's so easy to get distracted and not to hear what the Lord longs for us hear.

He's always speaking, and I don't want to miss Him.

Great reminder!!

Blessings to you this WFW♥

I like the earphones-that-hear-only-our-Father's-voice concept. I'll have to remember that next time I'm overdoing life. Thank you, Laura!

Terri Tiffany said...

I need those headphones today! I get so busy worrying sometimes, I forget to listen! Love your new blog,

Sue said...

Thanks for the wonderfully illustrated verse. We all need to be nudged from time to time to tune it to God.

THAT WAS A WORD IN DUE SEASON....
SO MANY PEOPLE ARE RUNNING DOWN THE STREET WITH HEADPHONES ON...WALKING HERE...BUZZING THERE BUT EVERYBODY IS LISTENING TO THE WORLD AND NOT THE MAN WHO CREATED THE WORLD.
