Devotions, WRITING

Day 1-Listen Up

So my friend Laura is on a journey and I decided to jump in. She is on a journey for 40 days of making sure she has some personal time with God for 40 days straight. So my first day of this journey seems really appropriate.

I had a bit of a situation the other day that really had the potential to stress me out. Here’s what happened. It was day before tax day so you can imagine how stressed I was already because our taxes weren’t mailed yet. So I get all our tax mail together and at the same time I had a business check to deposit. So I get all that together. Can you see where this story is going. So to make sure our taxes got out in time I sent David to the USPS drop box near his work which is where the bad part of this story happened. David dropped off the mail only to realize the next day, tax day, busiest day of the year, that he had dropped my unsealed envelope with the check and deposit slip into the USPS drop box. The previous day when I was getting all the paperwork together I kept hearing this still small voice saying “seal the envelope and make sure David knows not to drop it off with the mail”. But because I was so busy and in a rush I didn’t listen. This happens to me a lot and if I would just listen then I could avoid these not so fun scenarios. I read this scripture in John 14:16-17.

16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you.

So now I’m listening. I’m going to make sure to listen to that still small voice. So I told God yesterday. “All-right I’m listening up”. I recommend you do the same.
