Wednesday Whisper ~ Press Pause

Typically, the tests of faith we experience vary, but sometimes, we face the same crisis repeatedly until we pass the test. We haughtily view Israel’s lack of faith, but most likely follow a similar pattern. Increasing stress builds till at the panic point, we implode or explode without a thought given to the One who could intervene for us. Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Got Time

“But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing!” Paul also warns in 1 Corinthians 7:29, “I do want to point out, friends, that time is of the essence. There is no time to waste, so don’t complicate your lives unnecessarily. Keep it simple…” (The Message). Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ True Freedom

Thank God He sent Jesus to free us from the power of death. Jesus, though innocent, received the punishment for the sin of everyone and broke the chains of sin that threaten to control us. Freedom back to an intimate relationship with the Father begins by believing Jesus is His one Son. Jesus is the key Who sets us free. “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36 NIV) May you experience true freedom in Him today. Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Quiet Times

Even Jesus had the habit of getting up before sunrise and going to a solitary place to listen to and talk with His Father. David wrote in Psalms 37:7a, “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.” (NIV) Being still before the Lord allows us to worship and give thanks to the Almighty, to bask in His love and peace, to share our burdens, seek His wisdom, and listen for counsel.

May we regularly set aside a time and place and not miss the most important meeting of our day.  He will be there. Will we? Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Truth Triumphs

Choosing to speak the truth is a decision to take the high road, perhaps the road less traveled. Those who tell the truth hold the honor of being trustworthy, credible, and respected. The LORD Almighty says in Zechariah 8:16-17, “’And now here’s what I want you to do: Tell the truth, the whole truth, when you speak…” Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Fall, Not a Season

When we make those wrong choices, or sin, we need to acknowledge it, straighten things out with God and the one(s) we hurt, get help as needed, and then move on. Falling is expected but we are not expected to stay down or continue making that same stupid ‘fall.’ Let’s learn from our mistakes and do all we can not to repeat them. Falling is costly. It has consequences and leaves scars, but does not need to be permanent. Continue reading

I Hear a Whisper

I hear a whisper
Is that Your voice?
Should I listen?
I have a choice
I could ignore
Go back to sleep
But sleep won’t come
Your voice is deep Continue reading
