1. To everything there is a season.
    You know, everything, including our praise comes from God. Everything! Our ability to desire Him comes from Him. Everything. Even Hearing His voice.
    And from what I've learned in the past couple days . . . when we do not 'sense' God's voice – His presence – that can be a sweet gift from God. He is growing our faith and is forever working in our spirit to purge anything that is not eternal: our spirit- a place when our senses may not 'feel'- but where the Almighty God resides.
    That which is born of flesh is flesh – that which is born of spirit is spirit. And those that worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
    I must remember to worship God for who He is regardless of whether He gifts me with a word or with His tangible presence because He is worthy.
    Sandy . . . I am so honored to be walking with you in this journey.

  2. So, you know I had surgery, so my pace is not as fast as I would normally go (and I'm talking life here, not running). I was thinking about all the things that I need to do and the physical energy that they would take (you haven't seen my kitchen floor). I thought about articles I wanted to write, lesson plans for church, the Bible study coming up and there was a bit of anxiety that everything wouldn't be accomplished. Then, God said, "How about you try to go at MY pace. See how you like it? You can't go the pace you want to do — doctor's orders, so why don't you at least try in the meantime?"

  3. Love your transparency, Sandy! Must admit that I've done the same thing for my devo blog – begged God for something to share on my blog rather than just begging to hear from Him. The fact that He puts up with me at all is truly amazing, let alone, reveals Himself to me in His word! Praise Him for the great God that He is!! Have a beautiful week, friend! 🙂

  4. Well, I'm back and I don't know when I'll have time to catch up on days 14-29, so I just skipped to Day 30 for now! What a great ending to an exciting time! Of course, we know that God is not finished speaking, but this series was awesome and I carried the themes with me in my heart on this mission trip. God has been doing a lot of speaking to me in the past several weeks about my family. I look forward to catching up on your site to see how you've been doing and reading more in the days to come! God bless!

  5. I am a little sad, Sandy, to see the series end, but I am a forward moving girl . . . so can't wait for the next one.

    I have struggled with this when I am leading a small group. I get so excited when I think of a great small group question etc. that I forget to study for me.

    You make me laugh, you make me think, you make me want to be more like Jesus. Thanks. Glenda

I started following you just after you started i think! Anyway Ja i will miss it but there BETTER BE, i mean there will be other adventures 😀

  7. Hello! I'm coming over from Jen's place because I loved your comment about the Sabbath rest over there (completely agree with you). And then I read this post and it totally cracked me up. So now I have to find the time to read all 30 days of your hearing God posts…and I can't guarantee that will happen, but I do have good intentions.

    Lovely to meet you here!
