September 19

After several months of going through the process of selling our home and moving to a new one, I began to feel like I wasn't hearing God's voice clearly. I'd become so dependent upon hearing from Him that it seemed I'd become hearing impaired, I got a little anxious. Morning after morning I would beg to hear His voice and He would whisper to me and I would strain to recognize His words. I muddled through and still honored my commitment to Him to bring a fresh word to His followers. The truth is that I was so pre-occupied with many other things that my own thoughts were interfering with my reception. It was like being between radio stations where I was only picking up part of the station. God had not grown distant from me, I was the one who muffled the speaker. After I refocused and gave Him the attention that He deserved, something broke and I could hear Him clearly again. I broke! I surrendered! I admitted my weakness and He became my strength. 

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. The LORD is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed. Psalms 28:7-8
