Good Grief

Good Grief

“Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah….”   Do you ever feel like the adults on Charlie Brown when you are talking to someone?  Especially your spouse or your children?

It drives me batty when I am trying to talk to my children or give them chores etc., and I feel like they aren’t listening to a word I say.

Or I’ll tell them something over and over, and they turn to me and say, “Huh?”

I wonder if that is how God feels when He is trying to tell us something or trying to get us to do something?  

The Word says the He knows His sheep and His sheep know His voice.  Sometimes it’s hard to hear that still, small voice, when we have so much going on in and around our lives.  It seems as if God is inaudible or speaks another language entirely. 

His living words are in the Holy Bible.  He speaks thru His word, straight into our lives and hearts. Even when you can’t hear Him audibly, know that you can read His words of wisdom and guidance.

So the next time that you feel as if no one is “hearing” you, ask yourself if you are listening for the voice of Jesus.
