When He Speaks to me



When God speaks…

twisted tree fallen

the earth

does more than listen—



The land quakes
Rocks slide
Trees splinter
Winds roar
Mountains rise
Waves crash
Rivers rush
Lava boils
Fountains splash
Sand sinks
Flowers bloom
Birds molt
Lizards shed
“And the doe labors and gives birth.”

THE EARTH obeys; it has no free will to react differently.

WHAT DO I DO when the Lord speaks?

What do I do when Peace pleads with me?
What do I do when Joy shouts my name?
What do I do when I hear Love’s tender whisper?

Will I react the same today as I did yesterday?
Will I give a thumbs-up as I carry on with my life?
Will I ‘lift my eyes’ merely to wink at the One speaking?

OR WILL I STOP EVERYTHING. Set aside my will. And say, as young Samuel did…

“I’m listening, Lord. Speak to me.”

1 Samuel 3

2 owls in field


What WILL you do next time your Lord God speaks?
How WILL you respond to the King and Creator?

Yes! He still speaks today!

STOP NOW! And listen…


The Spiritual Ears of an Embattled Spirit

Psalm 29 (New Life Version)

Give to the Lord, O sons of the powerful.
Give to the Lord shining-greatness and strength.
Give to the Lord the honor that belongs to Him.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holy living.

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters.
The God of shining-greatness thunders.
The Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful.
The voice of the Lord is great.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars.
Yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the tall cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon jump like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild bull.
The voice of the Lord sends out lightning.
The voice of the Lord shakes the desert.
The Lord shakes the desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, and tears away the leaves of the trees.
And in His holy house everything says, “Honor to God!”

The Lord sat as King over the flood.
The Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people.
The Lord will give His people peace.
