Hello, how are you? It’s Sunday afternoon as I write to you. So far this day has been kind of confusing. This morning I was guided to Proverbs 22:11 so I got out of bed and found it in my Bible and after reading it had to wonder why I was lead to it:
“He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend”
I asked one of my friends for his interpretation of what this meant and he said he thought it was about reputation and the company you keep. I just couldn’t see anything but the written word when I read it! May be the only reason I read it was for that very exchange I had with my friend?
Sometimes I wonder if I am trying too hard to hear God’s voice. I keep expecting a miracle or some large and grand gesture. May be the answer for my current circumstances can be found last night at church. The message was found in 1 Kings 9-19. It was about Elijah being in a cave hiding out and how God sometimes speaks in a whisper…..” What are you doing here, Elijah?”
For the past several months I feel like I have been in a sort of cave. I feel like I have been waiting to hear God’s voice to summon me out, “What are you doing there, Jackie?” I just have to be willing to “go from there” when it happens!
“whisper” in the English Ordinal system equals 98 (no for eternity) “Louder God, Louder!”
