Wednesday Whisper ~ Voices

So let’s pause and soak in His love. Let it flood and overflow our heart, mind, and soul. Allow His love to wash away the pain and bask in His goodness. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1). Open your ears and heart to hear His whisper, “I love you, I love you, I love you!” Let it echo in your mind and replay it often, chasing the unpleasant away.   Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Dinner, Anyone?

Psalm 23:5 says “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Now imagine you are having that dinner with your Lord. He has prepared the table just for you and Him. Your enemies, held back by His power, may not participate. They can merely watch and regret that they had not joined in a covenant with this King, rejecting His salvation time and time again. Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Restored!

Psalm 23:3 says, “He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” So, why would these sheep, whose every need is met by the shepherd, need restored? Because, each of us was born with a sin nature. Our ideal relationship with God was damaged once sin entered the world. And once again, our Shepherd stepped up to meet our need. By dying for our sin, Jesus paid the price and took on our punishment. He made a way for us sheep to have a restored relationship with the Father/Shepherd. Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~Hammock & Ice Tea

So, this Shepherd provides, once again, everything his ‘sheep’ need, nourishing food, a calm source of water to drink, and a comfortable, safe place to rest. And, we can truly rest when we trust Him with our anxious thoughts, fears, and worries. As you lie your head on the pillow tonight, imagine releasing your worries. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Pet. 5:7). Be refreshed and be at peace. Your Shepherd is near saying, “I’ve got this.” Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ Meet Needs?

Why don’t we need a thing? Because when we accept the fact that we are needy sheep who need a perfect Shepherd and Lord, He promises to meet our needs. Our God who loves us beyond comprehension wants to meet our needs and He already knows what they are. So, let’s stay near the Shepherd, trusting Him in our time of need. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). Continue reading

Wednesday Whisper ~ The Path of Life

On the path of life, we do not know what we will encounter, how long the steep, difficult sections may be, the magnificent views we will savor, or what adventures will challenge and change us, but we can know there is One who desires to walk with us and who promises never to leave us. His name is Jesus and He knows the way. He is the most dependable trail guide of all. We can follow Him for direction and lean on Him when we are weak and weary. Through treacherous passages, He may even carry us. Be assured that whatever our course, He is always by our side. Psalm 23:3b says, “He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Continue reading
