My Heart’s Answer

The Watered Soul: My Heart’s Answer

Feb 9, 2011

My Heart’s Answer

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT)

Like the rest of the world, there are so many things that require my attention during the course of the day. Needful things. Critical things. Routine things. So much stuff and things that at times, I find myself overwhelmed by it all. And, if I’m not very cautious all of those things will drown out my ability to hear His call and my willingness to answer.

 Psalm 27-8

Can you hear Him calling you today? Will you answer Him or leave him waiting?

Everyday I know He is waiting for me to call unto Him...
I just ignore it sometimes and could only think about Him when I have nowhere to run...
God's reminder is very evident but I choose to disobey and ignore Him...
But He made me realize that apart from Him I AM ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Thanks for reminding me again today... thanks for watering my soul, Wanda.
God bless...
Wish to talk to you for long in person ;)

Oh my GOODNESS! The Lord led me to this verse about a week ago and my heart rejoiced seeing it again! Blessings...and continue allowing the Lord to speak to your heart, and continue to listen.

In His love,
JB

Wanda,
What beautiful words and verse. Your post is so true. It is so easy to let life and activities drain our energy and ability to hear Him. May my life not drown out His voice today.

This is such a challenge and I thought by this time of my life it would surely be habitual......but while I have a set routine of a night...I am not awake in the mornings...although I have tried to pick up a book of daily readings first thing......but it is so easy to get into bed.....unfortunately I can no longer kneel and spread my Bible and books over the bed a I used to love to do........so it is easy to start reading a novel and then decide you are just too tired for the word, your journal prayer diary etc. And that shames me when it happens.
I need to start with the word....

So true. May God be at work in all of our hearts, showing us his Word, and conforming us to his image

He does talk to us everyday. we have to ask God to open our ears to hear His voice clearly. what a privilege to get to talk to the King of Kings and He talks back to us.

Oh Wanda - you read my mind yesterday, didn't you? I usually do Bible first thing, unless I am going out - and then I listen to it first thing. But yesterday, I put if off "For just a bit." Next thing you know, that just a bit was bedtime, and I lasted 5 minutes before I fell asleep. PTL - He is gracious and merciful and forgives us and gives us a NEW DAY with NEW MERCIES, and YES I did my Bible study bright and early. :) And what a delightful way to start the day, isn't it. Thanks for the awesome encouragement. :) Have a blessed week!

I love this, thank you for sharing this verse! Sometimes, I just need to stop what I'm doing and follow him because he's calling! :)

I would love it if you saw my word filled picture!

LORD, I am coming!!!

Blessings Wanda...what a beautiful heart's answer and verse to choose!
As only Our Lord fills those empty pieces (in this puzzle or our lives).

Focus on the drumbeat of Our Lord and let all the other "stuff" be drowned out, or wait and those pieces will come together so much better just for acknowledging God's place first in our day, in our lives, in our heart! I know you want to so now praying that it happens, cuz we both know the delight it is for the Lord and us when our heart is full of His love!
May He complete this WFW as you abide in Him, and He in you!

Really wonderful WFW and message!
Looks like it's awakening some hearts! Let not our hearts be overwhelmed but overflowing! Great Psalm for this season! Thanks for speaking to the hearts of so many!

Love, peace and JOY in Christ Jesus,
Peggy

Hi Wanda -

Such a great reminder this is for us. We do need wake up calls...

Thank you for sharing what we need to remember.

Yes, Lord, yes. I am ever thankful for all the times You have overlooked the times I have failed to stop and listen to You.

Girl! I so needed to be reminded of this! He calls and I like you find myself being pulled in so many different directions that if I'm not careful, I'll neglect to hear His voice....I long to answer, "Lord, I am coming." ALL the time...not putting Him on hold, but always being ready to hear and listen and respond....
Wanda....soooooo good! sooooo good!

peace girl!

I hear Him calling and I'm picking up the phone!!

Oh, yes, Lord - speak to me. Your servant is listening.

Thanks for sharing this, Wanda. It really made me stop and take a moment - just to be still. I needed it!

GOD BLESS!

I also try to listen, but sometimes I am confused if it is my intuitive voice or his~ Usually the hard stuff, I know it is him~ Great point to ponder, as always! Happy Weekend!

This verse and post was meant for me as well. So often, I tend to get caught up with my day to day routine and not be cautious of God's voice like I should be. Thanks for the reminder. Blessings to you and Happy Valentine's Day!!!
