Day 24: Hearing God
on March 22nd, 2023
WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? READ-  Philippians 2:3REFLECT- I am in a cover band. I have been (off and on) for decades. I find it relaxing the way that some people find playing golf or reading relaxing. A couple of years ago we were playing our annual Halloween night reach-out event in Marysville, CA. The event itself pulls in thousands of people in for a couple of hours and our band gets to pla...  Read More

WHAT IS LOVE? (BABY DON’T HURT ME NO MORE)READ- John 14:15-24REFLECT-  Most of you might know the lyrics to the popular pop song What is Love by Haddaway, and if you don’t maybe ask someone of the 80s, 90s generation and they can tell you. It seems like the artist of this song has a strong devotion to his partner but he is getting hurt by staying in the relationship; maybe she is not reciprocating...  Read More

EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORNREAD- John 15:1-4REFLECT- With Spring upon us I love watching the flowers bloom and the beautiful colors of creation return to the cold and barren trees. Even in this wet weather, our roses have already begun blooming and the cold sharp thorns have started to become hidden behind the blooming roses. I love it when our roses bloom; the plain gray of the house suddenly become...  Read More

Day 20: Hearing God
on March 18th, 2023
WHAT DID YOU SAY?READ- Psalm 85:8REFLECT- Let’s be honest! All of us have slipped into what is known as “selective listening” at one time or another. You know what I am talking about here! It’s when we choose to listen to the bits and pieces that we want to, and ignore or pretend to be listening to the other pieces of information. Whereas this may become useful when you are processing tons of info...  Read More
Day 19: Hearing God
on March 17th, 2023
IT’S NOT A ONE WAY STREET!READ- Proverbs 2:1-6, Proverbs 22:17-18, Jeremiah 33:3REFLECT- Have you ever been in a Bible study and secretly hoped that the leader doesn’t suggest popcorn prayer? You know, the kind of prayer where people just take a turn, often leading to awkward silences? You don’t want to be the only person who doesn’t pray, but praying out loud in a group can be scary. I can’t pray...  Read More

on March 16th, 2023
ACTIVE LISTENINGREAD- Revelation 1:1-3; Luke 11:28REFLECT-  As a child I used to get in trouble OFTEN. During my video game phase I would be so wired into my game that whenever I was told something by my parents it didn’t always work out ideally for anyone. I would be told something along the lines of, “Son, you’re hearing me, but you’re not listening.” As I entered adulthood, in particular, marri...  Read More

on March 15th, 2023
LISTEN WITH YOUR EYESREAD- Psalm 19:1REFLECT- A large percentage of what is communicated in human communication is non-verbal. The percentage of verbal to non-verbal communication varies, depending on the research, but most would agree that at least 70% of what is communicated in a person to person conversation is done through non-verbal cues. We “hear” what other people are saying by not just the...  Read More

on March 14th, 2023
LISTENING IN THE STORMREAD- Mark 4:35-41REFLECT- We have certainly had our share of storms this year. That doesn’t even take into account the other difficult things that you might have been facing lately. I don’t know about you, but whenever there is wind and rain I can’t wait for it to be over. Give me sun! In this story, it seems like it was all about when the storm ceased, the winds calmed down...  Read More
Day 15: Hearing God
on March 13th, 2023
SHHHHH!READ- 1 Kings 19:11-13REFLECT- Life can be a never-ending cacophony of thunderous outside noise fighting for our attention. It can be stressful and even overwhelming sometimes, so much so that we just want to cover our ears and scream, “BE QUIET!” We cry out, “God where are you?! Talk to me! Say something!” fully expecting a booming voice to rage down from the mountain and roar over all of ...  Read More

Day 13: Hearing God
on March 11th, 2023
Being StillREAD- Psalm 46:10; Psalm 37:7REFLECT- I grew up believing that no one is for me but me. Everyone will let me down. I have to be the one who does anything for me or it just won’t happen. When I became a follower of Jesus, I still kept trying to get what this life might have for me. Psalm 46:10 quickly became my favorite verse and I realized that it isn’t by my own strength I can do anyth...  Read More
