I love the Lord because he heard my voice when I didn't even know I was calling to him. He heard the cry of my soul for an anchor. I was drifting aimlessly on the sea of life. The Lord answered by guiding me to a safe harbor where gentle waves of love continually lap over my heart.
The Lord heard my voice when I stumbled through a forest of fears and worries. He heard my pleas for help, and he lead me through the trees to a spacious meadow where daisies danced in the wind. The Lord planted the daisies to remind me he is always near and he is greater than my fears and worries.
The Lord heard my voice as I crouched in the ashes of shattered dreams. He took my hand and raised me up. Then he placed a fragrant crown of flowers on my head to remind me that I am his beloved daughter.
Do you wonder if God hears your voice? I promise you he does. He places evidence all around you, and he's just waiting for you to discover it.
What can be known about God is clear to [us] because he has made it clear to [us]. From the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly observed in what he made.
God's answer to your worries or heartaches is right outside your door. Take a walk in a field or sit beside the water. You'll sense the Lord ministering to your weary soul through nature. Wherever you look, you'll discover love notes from the lover of your soul.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
