How do you hear God?
Earlier this week I experienced the trifecta of a great girl’s night out: good food, great conversation, and lots of laughter. One of my favorite parts of the night was when we talked about hearing God. I was telling a story about a writing project that I’ve felt like God has been all over. One of the girls was nodding along, tracking right with me. Another had a pleasant look on your face while she listened, but after a while she glanced around and said, “Um, I don’t hear God like that.”
That was the start of a great conversation about who hears God in their daily life. We wondered aloud about God’s leanings vs. our longings. About God’s voice vs. coincidence or common sense.
It got me thinking about the times–fewer than I’d like–that I feel like God truly spoke to me. Next week I’ll be sharing some of my own “hearing God” stories as well as some of yours. So…
Have you ever felt like you heard God? Leave a comment or send the scoop to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org…and give us the specifics. When, why, what, where, how….and I’ll share them here next week. If you haven’t heard God, tell me that too.
