13 ‘You (Yvette) will seek me and find me when you (Yvette) seek me with all your (Yvette) heart.’ Jeremiah 29: 13 (NIV)
I was about 14 or 15 years old when I was sitting in my bedroom knitting, I used to love sitting on the carpet in my bedroom on the floor. I heard my mom calling me “Yvette, Yvettie”. I jumped up and ran over to her. “Yes, Mommy” I said. My mom looked up from her reading and answered me “I didn’t call you.” I said: “Mommy I heard you, calling me.” She smiled at me and said “No, darling I didn’t.”
Well I turned around and left her and went back to my knitting, I was knitting dolls jersey and my concentrations was on the pattern at hand. I just got started when I hear my Mom calling me again I heard her calling me “Yvette, Yvettie”. It was clear as day light and she called me twice. I put my knitting down and ran over to her in her bedroom. “Yes Mommy” I stood in front of her expecting her to tell me what I was supposed to do. “You are such a darling.” She said and then she said “Go off and make us a nice cup of coffee.”
Later on in life I realised that the Lord was calling me and that I should have just answered “here I am Lord, speak Your servant is listing.” Now, it is my heart’s desire to hear God’s voice, I want to listen and hear Him calling my Name.
I currently am seeking the Lord my God with my whole heart and I am fine tuning my ears, I want to hear God’s voice. I know that God is here with me, I just need to pay attention.
Thought for today:
To hear God’s voice, I need to build my relationship with God and keep on praying.
Heavenly Father, Lord here I am, I am listening and waiting for You to speak to me. I open my heart, soul and mind to Your word, Holy Spirit come in and fill my life, in Jesus Name Amen.
