God knows how to get my attention….especially when He uses my own devices against me. I love it!
When my children were really small, I decided on a new way to get their attention while we were in a crowd, both at home and when we were out and about. We were always in a crowd….still are. I didn’t want to be loudly calling their names over the noise. It always annoyed me when Moms would do that.
Have you ever noticed that no matter the situation or crowd, someone can say “shhhhh” and people pause and look at the person saying it? I decided to use that as my tool to get my children’s attention. No matter how large the crowd, I could say “shhhh” quietly and their eyes would immediately be on me. It was magical!
For several mornings now, that’s how God has been waking me up! He wakes me up every day very early in the morning. I love it with every fiber in my being! Every night I get excited thinking about our time together the next morning and thank Him ahead of time for it. Several mornings now, I hear myself saying “shhhh” and my eyes pop open! It makes me laugh! He just tickles me!
In Matthew 4:19-20 Jesus says, “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” and we see in verse 20 that immediately they stopped what they were doing and followed Him. Also, John 10:27 Jesus says, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow Me”
Has God been calling? Listen. Shhhhh…..He is speaking to you even now. Look at Him.
