Good morning Folks ~ I am a tad late with getting this review out. Hurricane Irma and taking care of this place has kept me occupied. Then this past weekend we had tropical storm Philippe come on us all of a sudden dumping lots and lots of heavy rain, even some tornadoes. I am thankful Plum Cottage has done some more surviving, thankful to God for His tender care.
Before hurricane Irma, I had ordered a book from Blogging For Books to do a review for and it came afterwards and there were some great helpful and encouraging tidbits in this book.
The book is ‘Whisper – How to Hear the Voice of God’ by Mark Batterson.
There are many ways in which God speaks to us, we just need open our hearts to listen.
God wants to speak to each of us, you and me. Do we want to hear Him?
If we do, all we have to do is ask.
Some thoughts from this book are below:
“The goal of hearing the heavenly Father’s voice isn’t just hearing His voice; it’s intimacy with Him. He wants to be as close to us as is divinely possible.”
“Nothing has the potential to change your life like the whisper of God.”
“His whisper quiets us, calms us, stills us.”
“The voice of God is all-powerful ~ it is also all-loving.”
“Jesus is in the business of opening impossible doors and leading us to impossible places. It’s one of the ways He whispers.”
“God can use anything to accomplish His purposes, and He can do it anywhere, anytime and anyhow.”
In this book Mark lists seven love languages in which God whispers to us. They are Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, Pain.
This was a good, encouraging read and I have LOTS underlined to go back and re-read and be encouraged and uplifted by.
I am thankful for the many ways
in which I have experienced God’s whispers in my own life.
May we all be open to hearing God’s whispers each and every day.
