Just Ask.

LISTEN © How can I distinguish God’s words from the rest? When I ask for His guidance, is there some kind of test? I pray then I listen, and then I pray again. I start with “Dear Jesus” and end with “Amen.” But the clouds never part or lights flash in the sky, Heaven’s Angel’s have yet, to convey His reply. I wonder at times if my prayers do get through? For things that I’ve asked for seem way overdue. I feel that He hears me then again I’m not sure. His responses to my questions return in a blur. How I envy those people who talk to our King. Then hear His voice clearly what a joy that must bring. They take those long walks with Him by their side. The discussions are endless He’s there to confide. If someday I’m blessed and I do hear Him speak, Responding in His words, to the answers I seek. Do you think He might mention He speaks everyday? But I need to be listening, and “ Believe” as I pray.

"Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." We do not see God but we know He is, we cannot touch Him but we know He listens, and we can always praise Him because of His great Love, we receive His answers!
