Having a personal experience with God will change you in an instant. It could happen really anyway God chooses to get your attention. For me, it is happening more frequently and still leaving me with a longing for more of Him. See, God wants to talk to His children, he wants to have intimacy with us.  When Scripture says seek me with ALL of your heart, He’s not playing mind games with us. He is clearly stating, I made you, I know all of your thoughts, behaviors, and hangups better than you even know yourself.  So wouldn’t He know if you are not seeking Him with all of your heart? The next part of that scripture says, And when you do, you will find Me. Ah- ha, most of the time we give up before we find Him. Then we make excuses about God and then we continue to let the world shape our thoughts and actions. Soon, we feel lost but this whole God thing is just too much work when Ive got kids, work, me time, etc. I mean who has time to go on a treasure hunt to find God? Hello, if He can see all then doesn’t he know I am drowning in busyness?

Now, He is so kind and merciful that He knows we are going to stray away ( like a little lost sheep) because we just don’t have the time or the energy to give Him a pennies worth. So then He says, Come to Me all who are tired and burden and I will give you rest, for my yoke is easy. Ah-Ha, God is pretty clever. There is not one thing He doesn’t have that you need and more. He even says, that I have all you need.

Ok , now that I have made my point….

What do you want out of the remaining days you have left? BTW, guess who knows how many days you have left ( Hint, hint)

Test the Spirit ( scripture)  and this will help your faith. God created us to ask questions but to also trust so ask  God to reveal himself to you, give you a sign, a dream. Start by asking. He does listen to you. Yep, he knows what you said last night and he knows what you said this morning. Maybe try talking to Him directly for a change.

Ask Him to open your ears to His voice.

God will steer you in the “good” direction if you allow him to. But here is the kicker, you might want to start talking to him, quieting yourself down, putting your EGO down ( Edging God Out) I hate to burst your bubble, but His plan is better than yours.

There are many, many, many people(s) throughout the earth that believe Miracles, Visions, Dreams are ridiculous and the people who believe in Miracles, Visions, Dreams are just out of their minds. For those who only talk about miracles and leave God out of the equation is dangerous and an out of your mind place to be. God wants to reveal himself but we humans are so fickle that we are often chase the shiny things, the new things, the exciting things, the sexy things. We don’t think we are irrational or easily misread but we truly are not as smart nor as wise as we think we are. We need a Savior and we also need a Lord of our lives.  Sometimes I laugh at how silly people can be ( myself included) because we think we are so powerful but in reality it would be like an ant walking into your front door and believing that they will now be ruling and reigning in your home. It’s crazy how ignorant we are and continue to be. If you are searching and I know you are, then here are two books I recommend by the same author. Isn’t it time to wake up from your slumber little ant?
