Thankful Thursday~ the still small voice

thankful thursday

I have been bound and determined to ignore that “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:22) for months now.  I thought if I ignored it then I wouldn’t have go through any character building exercises or be challenged in any way.  I could just go about life and be happy and free.  To put it bluntly, that idea sucked! 

I know I needed a break from all the “ministry” stuff I was involved in and I needed to spend some time growing as “me”.  But you can’t really grow and ignore His voice.  The two work against each other.  I finally gave in and started listening.  Actually I had no choice, it was almost like He was yelling at me to pay attention.  And I am so thankful that I did. 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

                                                                        Jeremiah 29:11

He plans aren’t to hurt me but to bring me to the place where I am being all that He has created me to be.  I am seeing that really clearly right now and I am so very thankful!
