Thankful Thursday- the still small voice

"As you think about your Thankful Thursday post, consider your heart. Write about obedience or hearing the voice of God. Be Blessed, Lynn"

Quoted that from Lynn's post.


I know we don't hear it too often, specially when we get too busy with what's going on in our life. When we are too engrossed with our ministry, when we are too concerned with things we need and things that surrounds us.

I was taking a shower yesterday morning and I knew I heard that voice.

Yes, sometimes God speaks to us in silence, not only thru reading His words or hearing sermons and preachings. And I know in my heart it is Him who spoke that morning.

And he wants me to do something. He wants me to give up and resign from a certain ministry which I am very involved with. I mean I am one of those who pioneered that ministry. I belong to the core group leader of that ministry.

But why would He want me to give that up? That I do not know.

but Psalms 32:8 says

" I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you"

I also remember last January, God told us He is giving us new direction. So I wonder would this be it? Should I leave all the ministry I am involved now because He is leading us to new direction?

I thank God for His voice, His words. Though it is not easy for us to give up something that is dear to us we still should be thankful in hearing that still small voice. Obedience is not easy. but obedience is better than sacrifice.I hope I will obey my God whatever it is that He is asking me to do.

So what are you thankful for this week? share it with us. God bless everyone!
