So today I was going to blog about the glorious day today is supposed to be. I was also going to add in my opinions about people checking their phones during church. But, I will save that for another day.
Today I'm going to blog about.... listening. Once we returned from church, a beautiful and PACKED service, we received some devastating news that a friend of ours had gone to live with the Lord. While I know this is what happens. The Lord will take you when he's ready for you, it has hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn't prepared for this. I wasn't ready. I'm still in a bit of shock. It feels very surreal.
Here's why I'm posting about Listening. The last few days, I've been meaning to call my friend, but for one reason or another, I didn't. He had been popping into my thoughts, even this morning. The Lord was speaking to me in the quietest moments to call him, but I didn't listen. So today, I ask you to listen. Listen to the Lord when he nudges you to do something. Listen to Him when he wants you to make a change. Listen to Him through your children. Just be still and listen. He's there. He's working on us. Just..... listen.
