It's been a while!

Well we just finished our 21 days of prayer and fasting. Joining together with many other churches from around the world through awake21.org. It has been an amazing journey this last month. As much as I don't like to admit it, cause it would be much easier to not fast, I find that I really do enjoy fasting. It's the benefit of it all. Denying your flesh to grow your spirit. WOW what a concept.

Through this fast I've had several goals and everyone of them have been met. I started reading a book called "Whispers of God" by Bill Hybels and it has just been rocking my world. To really pay attention to those times, and make more room for God to speak to us. I know I get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of life, just like everyone else. I probably spend more time on facebook and twitter than I should, but I realized through this time more than ever that God's whispers are the words that truly direct our steps and if I want my steps directed into the things of God then I need to listen more. I can look back over my life and think about the many blessings that have happened to me and my family every time I followed a God Whisper. I know I would not be where I am today if I missed those simple, quiet, yet life altering whispers.

But one thing is key in all of this...If I want to follow those God Whispers and live a life of no regret it all boils down to 2 words:

Trust & Obey

Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMP)
5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.

I love the use of the word 'plain' in that passage. Nothing fancy....not even a bit complicated. Just 'straight & plain'.
