GOD IS CALLING!
Is God calling to me? Does this mean I need to STOP ... and LISTEN for His voice?
Is God trying to tell me something? What would He be calling me to do; or what is it that I need to know?
Sometimes, I wish He would just pick up the phone and call me instead of leaving me to figure it out for myself. That would be so much easier; just answer the phone ... and HE would be there on the other line!

But, God does call us in many ways such as the covers of those books I saw! He calls to us through His Word; in the words of the music we listen to; in the books we read; through the words or actions of other people; even in the world around us!
Today, He spoke to me in the words of another blogger - or two! The words came at just the right time when I needed to hear them...and brought tears to my eyes, and a changed heart! Oh, to be able to remember those feelings every day, Lord!
When we do hear God calling, in whatever way He chooses to do so, how are we to know for sure it is God calling to us? Do we really listen to His voice; to what He is saying to us?
And, when we do hear God calling ... do we head right out and do as He had asked of us?
If we are grounded in the Word of God, and in His teachings, we are more likely to know His "voice" when He calls ...
And, if we listen closely enough to the voice we hear, He will call us by name; He will show us His way; He will lead us down the path He wants us to take!
