Listening Journal – Missing Me

In my recent article on deepening connection with God I shared about the practice of listening and writing what I sensed God speaking to me. This time, I have shared several verses and some lyrics that drive the point home. Honestly, if what I sensed God speaking to me did not align with the Bible, I would not believe it or share it. I pray that God uses these words to encourage you and draw you closer to Him. Please share this with others who would benefit.

“My Child, today my love is active and circulating throughout your circumstances. Every moment, you breathe it in. There is no escaping my love but you do so much to avoid it and act like it’s not there. Much like the wind, it soothes you and fills your lungs with cool, fresh air but unless you sit still and direct your attention to it, you don’t notice it. Like so many of life’s circumstances and problems that you find yourself wading through, I am right there with you, yet you stomp by, failing to see me. With your eyes on your shame and imperfections, you miss my loving gaze. Then you go about your life acting like I just don’t care. Acting like I’m aloof or distant or distracted or busy. Acting like I have better things to do than calm your fears and wipe your tears. But here I am. Right here. Reach out your hand and touch me. Take a moment to stop, sit, listen, and sense my life-giving presence comforting you.”

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness;

he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17

For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.

Isaiah 57:15

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.

Psalm 139:7-10

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you;

he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

Let Me Love You – Third Day

Ever since the world around you shattered
You’ve been looking everywhere for something more
Sometimes you feel like your life doesn’t matter
But it does, I tell you it does

Come on let Me love you now
Come on let Me love you
And hold you through the storms
I will keep you safe and warm

Come on let Me love you now
Come on let Me love you
And kiss away your tears
I will always be here
Come on let Me love you

Yesterday you found your heart was broken
And tomorrow doesn’t leave much room for hope
Today you’ll find that My arms are wide open
And My heart, My heart is full of love

Come on let Me love you now
Come on let Me love you
And hold you through the storms
I will keep you safe and warm

Come on let Me love you now
Come on let Me love you
And kiss away your tears
I will always be here

Give up on all the other things
Cause My love can bring you more
And if you take a chance on Me
I’ll give you what you’re looking for
