Blessed are those who hear the word of God.
Back talk from the throat of my teen.
Bad news tumbling from my TV.
Bickering bouncing between my young children.
Some days I think it would be easier to click off my ears. And I do. I don't hear the people who walk about in my heart and I don't hear the One who makes His home there.
But no news is not good news.
Stifling communication exacerbates whatever it is I'd prefer not to discuss.
Today I'm over at Encouragement Cafe sharing about a time I tried to walk out of God's earshot. If you ever struggle to hear His voice or distinguish His from yours or others, you'll find rest in this stroll with the Shepherd. Come on over: http://www.encouragementcafe.com/2012/08/27/the-shepherds-voice/
