Focus: Vox Dei ~ God’s Voice … Day 26 of 31

7 Comments


I find it interesting that today’s prompt is VOICE. In awe I stroke these keys and listen, as I have been for days to the …

Revelation from the Word

… Still small voice of my Father

Go ->

In awe I Praise His name as His voice, through the strokes of others like me, caresses my spirit with soft reminders …

“I will meet all your needs according to the riches of His Glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19). Trust God. Embrace truth. Live His promise.

~ Lysa TerKeurst FB status

consistent encouragements …

Affirmation – God is trustworthy. His promises do not change. By placing my hope in Him, I have confidence & encouragement. Heb 6:19

~ Faith and Health Connections FB status

and biblical examples of His faithfulness …

A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him. fearing the storm … Jesus got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves,
“Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
Jesus said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” -Mark 4:35-40

Above the Storm

Apparently Hurricane Sandy thinks she has a date on the Jersey Shore with a storm coming simultaneously from the west … people all around me are concerned and fearful … and while I am tense [especially since the tornado and tree/house issue last month] I am listening to God!

As I continue to stand in awe of God’s Voice, not audible today, rather more like a spiritual caress, and follow his guidance here on my mission field [the internet] … where He trusts me and those like me to carry be His voice and carry His Word to the Nations … I remain calm and pray, knowing the storms of this life, literal and figurative, are in His control.

He told us via Vox Dei [His voice] by His Word. =D

STOP!

Blessings! Now it’s your turn! Tell us what comes to your heart when prompted by VOICE!

So, here’s the skinny: every Friday for over a year hundreds of people join a kind of writing flash mob over here @ Lisa-Jo Bakers for Five Minute Friday! 

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa posts at 1 minute past midnight EST every Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FiveMinuteFriday {and on Thursday night with #FMFParty}.

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

 

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Just 5 minutes …

Your words. This shared feast.

Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it Five Minute Friday rule: you must visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

Welcome to 31 days – the beautiful brainchild of the Nester who inspires us to spend the month of October writing every single day on a topic that might inspire a community.

Author: Hopeannfaith

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. Oh yes, His Voice: Seems we had the same Idea with this prompt. Stopping in from Lisa-Jo’s Link Up. His Voice is what leads us, guides us and directs our every step if we just simply stop and listen.

  2. I love when God speaks, His voice. It’s always the most profound and powerful when he speaks inaudibly. Praying for you during the Hurricane! Peace!

  3. Beautiful, Andrea, especially about experiencing God’s voice as a “spiritual caress”! Thanks for sharing. Blessings.
