God whispers

At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).

Join me as I share with you God Whispers that have that sustained, strengthened and encouraged me on my journey to be the Mommy and Wife God wants me to be.

Stop…and Bless!

It seems like the days get busier as the year rolls out.

And to cram all we can in a day, we tend to “microwave” and shorten the things that are actually important.

Like our time alone with God.

 

You may be going through an uncertain period in your life or perhaps you’re riding a storm. And this may be hard, but I encourage you to stop whatever you’re doing to list out on paper the things you are thankful for.

Tell Him.

Tell Him, how you’re thankful and give Him credit for …

the food on your table,

the health of your children,

clean drinking water.

His Protection over your life,

the provision of your needs,

your family,

your life.

Just keep adding to that list and as it grows you will recognize God’s Faithfulness upon your life.

 

Bless the LORD O my soul- Psalm 103- Photo Copyright Mommy Snippets

 

As the Psalmist says in Psalm 103:1-5

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s

 

The next time you’re rushing around through the day or feel overwhelmed with whatever’s weighing you down, would you do what I’ve learnt to do?

Stop…

and Bless!

Yes, direct every ounce of gratitude within you towards  who He is and what He has done in your life.

You will see how you will walk away from the moment…

encouraged, strengthened and refreshed.

Yes, you will then know with all your heart that He who has taken you through your yesterdays is well able to carry you through today, tomorrow and the tomorrows to come.

  1. As I think of things I usually just say a quick thank you prayer throughout the day. Sometimes things hit me in the outdoors and I am especially grateful for the beautiful world he created.

  2. Great post. I am definitely thankful for the help of my family! I think about that a lot.

  3. love this post! I am so thankful for all hat I have been blessed with and need to remember and always count those blessings even when I am going through hard times

  4. It is so true, often times we go so wrapped up in our days that we forget to be thankful for what we have. We are blessed and I know I don’t tell God often enough just how thankful I am for those blessings. Thank you for this reminder!

  5. I have to constantly remind myself to stop, be quiet and listen to God’s whisper. I so want to follow what He is telling me to do. I love inspirational books to read as they are good reminders of things I forget and they are very encouraging. This looks great
