For the last little while–say the last month or so–I’ve been searching into my heart for the voice of God. It’s kind of a new technique for me. In the past, I would often search my head/mind for God’s voice and come up with mixed results. Some of the stuff ended up being my own thoughts; some of the stuff seemed to be God’s.
So, I’ve been changing how I go about listening for God. And while the difference might not make much sense to you, it does to me and I guess that’s what’s important right now.
Anyway, in my listening I’m often hearing only the word “Come.” Again and again: “Come.” And I haven’t known what to do with it. I’ve thought, “Lord, is that all you have to say to me right now? Am I really hearing you?”
Later, I’ll stop and listen again… “Come.”
Today at lunch, as I flipped through one of my current reads, Pete Greig’s The Vow, I saw that the next chapter is titled, “When Jesus says ‘Come’.”
Needless to say, I’m terribly excited to get home tonight to read it and see what the Lord has to say through Greig. :)
