Do you ever feel like no one is listening?
Do you ever feel like your words fall to the ground and are walked over.
precious words.
words that count as much.
words from your heart?

Words that ultimately come from Him.
within your core..

I sometimes feel this way.
I know that there is a time, a season for all things,
and that sometimes,
I have to have patience to wait on God,
to see the fulfilment of those words,
yet it strikes deep inside me.
I am hungry for more of God...

Yesterday I had such a nagging hunger-It seemed that no matter how much I ate,
I still felt hungry.
Anyone that knows me, will know I am not a big eater.
Yet yesterday, I felt like all I did was eat!
But nothing satisfied...
nothing filled me up!

I feel a bit that way spiritually at the moment..
I'm hungry,
I'm craving God, His presence,
His words, his whisper..

Yet I cant seem to find enough to satisfy.
I'm hungry,
for more of Him.

I take comfort in the fact that He listens.
He hears my cries,
my desires,
my ambitions,
my dreams,
my desires,
for He placed them within me!

God! Satisfy my hungry soul with more of yourself...

Genesis 16:11
And the angel also said, “You are now pregnant and will give birth to a son. You are to name him Ishmael (which means ‘God hears’), for the Lord has heard your cry of distress.

Psalm 34:17
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.He rescues them from all their troubles.

Psalm 116:1
I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy.

1 John 5:15
And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.

Revelation 22:17
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.

From infancy

From infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus  2 Timothy 3:15 

This morning in the car to school we spoke about the fear of God being the beginning of wisdom.
I explained that respecting God will make us wise in our life choices,
we had a few examples.
Then my readings this morning were surrounding being a parent,
being able to teach our children from infancy to love God.

"From infancy! If you had a godly mom that brought you into the world surrounded by faith in Jesus, stories from the Bible, and lullabies of faith, then praise God and thank her. If you didn't, then make a commitment that your children and your grandchildren will be given this head start in life. Yes, personal faith will be won in adolescence or adulthood, but beginning in infancy is such a blessing. To fill a child's world with love and hope and promise because of Jesus is the greatest gift a parent can give!

My Prayer...

Holy and attentive Father, I thank you for the incredible gift of believing parents. I pray that more of us who do believe will be active in sharing our faith with our children. Please make my family and my life a place where children and grandchildren can find it easy to believe and safe to rejoice in Jesus. In his precious name I praise and thank you. Amen."

God speaks

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6 

This morning, in the car to school,
we tried something different.
I am trying to encourage my children to listen and recognise Gods voice to them.
We always pray on our way to school and today
I asked the girls to close their eyes,
ask God to speak to them,
give them some words 
or a picture.

They each had a moment to ask and think..
Then I said,
"What did you see or hear?"
Ellie, my middle daughter had a picture of our neighbours,
they go to the same school as us and have just moved around the corner.
She saw our family and theirs.
Jessie, my eldest saw a bunch of flowers.

Later that day,
this new neighbour turned up at our door,
with a bunch of flowers for me as we had helped them out.
It wasnt until I was unwrapping them to put in a vase that jessie exclaimed,
"Mummy!! Flowers!...from the people Ellie saw in her picture!"

God is good.
Love Him and how he can speak even to the little children.
