Hear Him

IMG_1866My Father He speaks – for He loves His child.
His Words are gentle, His attitude kind.

My Father He speaks to those in despair.
His patient persistence brings comfort and care.

My Father He speaks to the child who seeks Him.
He makes Himself known to the humble within.

My Father He speaks in the depth of the night.
He whispers His knowledge through the stars in the sky.

My Father He speaks in the middle of pain.
He comforts the weak, the afflicted and strained.

If you are His child and wonder today,
if your Father can speak – please stop and pray.

Then sit in the silence and open His Word.
Repent and seek Him – for there He is heard.

The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.
John 8:47

~
Lord, teach my heart to listen to You as You speak!
Help me to not only be sure to hear Your Word,
But more importantly obey what You say.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    Sitting in silence in order to hear from God is not intuitive for most of us. Thank you, Heidi, for this beautiful reminder of all we miss when we scurry through our days and never stop to listen to our Heavenly Father.
