I've been out on the deck for nearly 2 hours...in and out of my day four week six devotion in discerning the voice of God by @priscillashirer. In and out because my dog has come cuddling beside me, followed by my cat, My sweet son back and forth. I've stopped to listen to the birds sing, My son and his best buddy (our dog) play, I've taken in the moments to see God's handiwork in my life. I have stopped and dwelt in his presence, heard him speak to me several times this morning. As I looked up the guided verses from the devotion, I paused and took notes, I discovered other passages that left me in awe and amazement. My friend, his presence is all we need. We don't need to go to a specific place to find it, we just need to be aware of it, and pause when the moments arise. We need to take time to seek him, to be still, and to trust that he is always there looking to develop a deeper relationship with us as we trust him, obey him at his word, and never stop seeking his presence! As mamas we are constantly on the go, having 2 hours like this isn’t always available, but today, I will aspire to always remember to pursue the pause, and enJOY his presence wherever I go!
