Last night, I went to bed early. As I was lying there, I had a thought... "You should get up and go work on your blog layout. Hubby's already asleep anyway."
After deleting a plug-in...I lost most of my layout, but had intended on re-installing my theme today. I went to sleep anyway, thinking I had plenty of time to work on it today since The Kindle Crew wasn't posting the Giveaway I donated until Sunday. This morning, I arose with a notification on my FB page about the new post...Jennifer posted EARLY! I wasn't prepared for that! I had a make-shift background and my sidebar was still MIA. Fast and Furiously I began downloading and re-installing my theme...adjusting and tweaking all the elements that weren't quite right...
Then I heard the STILL voice..."I was speaking to your heart last night. Did you not hear?"
I DID HEAR! I didn't recognize His voice!!!! I thought it was just a fleeting thought...nothing to take head of!
How many times have I brushed off the Lord voice??? I pray to hear His voice. I think I'm listening...BUT I am sometimes missing it.
If I had only recognized The Shepherd's voice, it would have saved me the frantic bustle this morning!
Audrey Assad has a Christmas song called Winter Snow that is playing through my head:
Could've come like a mighty storm. With all the strength of a hurricane.
You could've come like a forest fire. With the power of heaven in Your flame.
But You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below
You could've swept in like a tidal wave Or an ocean to ravish our hearts.
You could have come through like a roaring flood. To wipe away the things we've scarred.
Oh, no, Your voice wasn't in a bush burning. No, Your voice wasn't in a rushing wind.
It was still. It was small.It was hidden.
The blog layout, isn't that important in the Grand Scheme of Life. No one probably noticed, but myself. I just don't want to "miss it" again!
I pray that when He speaks to our hearts...we will recognize the prompting.
