Listen to that still small voice inside you
God lives in us, therefore we are connected to him. I have always been able to feel and sense God in me, even as a child. Some people may not believe that, if you are one who isn’t sure of that I will go further. There are people out there who have been in a situation where you felt strongly not to do something and by listening to that feeling found that it saved your life. That is the God that lives in us. We have these feelings living inside of us from the day we are born, intuition, gut feelings, premonitions, little voice,or a screaming voice ,urges, something that gently pushes us. A feeling that we should do a certain thing. We follow it and we may even take it for granted and not really acknowledge what it is. That is our God living in us helping us to move in the right direction. Sometimes we may not listen and find ourselves saying I should of listened to what I was feeling. I have had this happen many times in my life. I try to follow it but sometimes I get in a rush and try to ignore it. Like the time I broke my foot, while hanging my flower baskets. My little voice as I call it was Screaming stop, don’t do this, go get your ladder, stop standing on these things, its not save. I didn’t listen I though just this one more time and I’m done. And I was done. Down on the porch floor I went, hearing a loud crack, breaking my foot.
I have had other times as well, One time driving to North Carolina, it was sleeting, there was about 4 inches of sleet on the road. My windshield was icing up. I was also driving a little BMW at 65 mph. There were other vehicles passing me as well . I kept hearing this voice in my head telling me to get off the road and clean my windshield off. I said God could you please let the sun come out and clear my windshield off. Amazingly the sun came out for about 1 minute and it melted the ice a little bit.( The sun only came out that whole day for that One minute). The voice still said get off the exit and clear your windshield off. So I followed that voice. I got off the road long enough to clear off my windshield, got back on the road and say traffic stopped. I turned on the radio heard there was an accident. I felt strong to leave room between the cars ahead of me. It gave me the room I needed to turn my car around and get off the exit which I told others to do. I got around the wreak on a road that was parallel to the highway. I saw the wreak and the cars involved were the same cars I was driving with and those that passed me. Had I not listened to that voice inside me I too what of been involved in that wreak. There were trucks on top of cars, 11 vehicles involved. Thanks to my little voice (God) I am still here enjoying life. There have been lots of times like these.
One time I could not turn my steering wheel to get into the middle lane to make a left hand turn, at that very second a tractor trailer coming towards me swerved into the middle lane going quite fast. Had I been able to turn I would have been hit head on and probably been killed.
Thanks to my inner connections to God. You have them as well. Learn to tune into those God connections, it will help you make the right choice.
I asked God for a word for my path today. (that was yesterday) I was drawn to this book I’ve had a long time, the short story was about a women finding music in a Colorado stream after she asked God for a song, something to help her in her life at that moment. The story was about God giving her music through nature that helped her through the ups and downs of life. After reading that I was going to ride my bike. Pulled out a few papers that was in my phone carrier I use some times riding my bike and what does the paper I look at say. ” So there you have it how music can change your mood.” I laughed because it couldn’t of been any better timing. After my bike ride I went to do some journaling, I was sitting there and my eyes went to the bookshelf to my bible. I didn’t want to take the time at that second but the urge was to great so I heard in my mind Psalm 92 then Psalm 95 so I read both of them. They were all about music and singing to God giving him praise. For those of you who don’t know me I was part of a worship team for 17 years, and I’ve put that on the back burner for a long time. I then got a flash of the songs I wrote and the songs my husband wrote and felt I needed to take them and do something with them. They have been sitting there idle for years. Later I was talking to my husband and out of know where he started talking about his songs. Coincidence? I think not.
All of this was connected to show and speak to me to get back into my music to God. It is were I love to be, and it feels like home when I do spend the time praising and worshipping God in song, singing and playing my guitar or keyboard.
This is the post excerpt.
Welcome to my blog! It’s been on my heart to help people understand how we have an inner connection to God, and the ways He connects with us, to lead, guide and direct us. Learning to hear and understand what you are truly hearing. Cutting through all the chatter within to really hear that voice within, will help you to go through this life knowing that you are never alone. It will help you deal with life in a much better way. You will learn that if you take the time you will be able to really receive all the answers to your questions.When you quiet your mind and be still, ask what you need and really listen to that voice within you will find that it has always been there to lead you.
How do you quiet your mind from all this chatter and noise all around you? Sit down in a quiet place, start taking some deep breaths hold for a second and breath out and focus on the breath, this helps you to get focused. Continue to do this relaxing breath work, then return to a normal breathing pattern. Sit quietly and ask the question you need an answer to. When your mind wanders always bring it back to your breath, this helps you stay focused. Once you feel that you have done this long enough go about your business and expect you will receive your answer.
It can come in all kinds of ways. You will be drawn to the answer or the answer will be drawn to you. Make sure you are open to receiving it. I receive answers through so many ways. Books, people overhearing someone talking, an article, a song, a sign or billboard, a license plate. I have had answers to my questions come all kinds of ways. Don’t forget feelings, inklings, gut feelings, little voice, loud voice, intuition. There are some many ways. Some people feel red cardinals or things like that have been a sign. Red cardinals, eagles and birds have come to me as signs. Once you learn to really listen you will hear all you need to hear.
If you feel unsure of and answer you will find that you will receive the answer again and again, if you ask, and then listen.
Have a Great Day! Tammy Continue reading “My blog!”
