Hebrews: As it is said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
When I was first proposed to back in the eighties, I was up all night with a voice that tapped me on the shoulder, the forehead, and it felt like it slapped me upside the face a time or two, saying, "Are you doing the right thing? Are you sure you want to do this?"
In many ways, I hardened my heart and ignored that inner guidance. I don't regret marrying my was-band because of my incredible children and because I learned so much. Mostly, I learned that honoring God's voice is what we are called to do, not ignore it.
Some days when I slow down and become quiet, the inner guidance is still, sometimes, I hear it, and other times I wish it would speak louder. Most days, just the act of sitting down and meditating, I find that something comes from it. It could be as simple as a moment of true peace, sometimes it is guidance, and sometimes it's like we are just hanging together in silence, not having to say or do anything, just being.
May we hear God's voice today, honor it, and act on it. Only love comes from such an act. Peace and blessings to you.
