Are you looking?
Are you listening?
Are you searching?
God is there
He is there!
He is communicating to you,
the child who He loves
He is conveying His
But you’ve got to quiet yourself
You’ve got to look
For all that entangles
and pulls you away
from His loving presence
Will drown out the whispers
and the shouts

Good friend, take to heart what I’m telling you;
collect my counsels and guard them with your life.
Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom;
set your heart on a life of Understanding.
That’s right—if you make Insight your priority,
and won’t take no for an answer,
Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold,
like an adventurer on a treasure hunt,
Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours;
you’ll have come upon the Knowledge of God.
– Proverbs 2:1-5 (MSG)
DEMONSTRATE Your ways, O Eternal One.
Teach me to understand so I can follow.
EASE me down the path of Your truth.
FEED me Your word
because You are the True God who has saved me.
I wait all day long, hoping, trusting in You.
– Psalm 25:4-5 (VOICE)
But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep respond to His voice. He calls His sheep by name and leads them out of the pen. After He has brought out all his sheep, He walks ahead of them. The sheep follow Him because they recognize his voice.
-John 10:2-4 (GW)
