"Rooted and Grounded In Love" - Eph. 3:17
From Pastor Randy... In the Old Testament, we read a story about a young boy named Samuel. One of the interesting things about Samuel, to me, is that he heard God call his name and after several times of God calling, Samuel responded, “Speak Lord, thy servant is listening.”
I have to ask myself often “am I really listening to God?” He doesn’t always speak in words. Sarah Young, in her devotional booklet “Jesus Calling,” reminds us that God communicates in other ways – not just words. She writes, “I fling glorious sunsets across the sky, day after day, after day. I speak in the faces and voices of loved ones. I caress you with a gentle breeze the refreshes and delights you. I speak softly in the depths of your spirit where I have taken up residence… Practice looking and listening for me during quiet intervals… You will seek me and find me, when you seek me above all else.” Keep listening and give yourself a chance to rest in the presence of God!
In His Joy,
