"Hear Me, everywhere. Wherever you have a question, simply know that I have answered it already. Then open your eyes to your world.My response could be in an article already published. In the sermon already written and about to be delivered. In the movie now being made.In the song just yesterday composed. In the words about to be said by a loved one. In the heart of a new friend about to be made.My truth is in the whisper of the wind, the babble of the brook, the crack of the thunder, the tap of the rain.It is in the feel of the earth, the fragrance of the lily, the warmth of the sun, the pull of the moon.My Truth, -- and your surest help in time of need -- is as awesome as the night sky, and is simply, incontrovertibly, trustful as a baby's gurgle.It is as loud as a pounding heartbeat -- and as quiet as a breath taken in unity with Me.I will not leave you, I cannot leave you, for you are My creation and My product, My daughter and My son, My purpose and My .. Self.Call on Me, therefore, wherever and whenever you are separate from the peace that I am.I will be there. With Truth, And Light. And Love."
a message from Joel & Victoria Osteen
"But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is." (John 16:13)
Word from Joel and Victoria
God wants to help us make the right decision. He's there to warn us when we're about to make a mistake, or about to get into areas that are questionable and may bring us harm. It's just like an alarm clock going off in our conscience. He is that nervous feeling you get, that uneasiness we all hear telling us when we are about to do something that is not in our best interest. The Holy Spirit can speak through an inner feeling, an impression not in your head but in your heart. God speaks through your conscience and you can learn to hear His voice. The more time you spend with God the more you will be able to discern His voice guiding and directing you and leading you to a new level of joy and fulfillment.
God, when I spend time with You, I grow closer to You and learn to better hear Your voice. Thank You for giving us Your Spirit, that we may grow wiser. I will hear Your voice and I will obey it. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;
for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome
it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower,
and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
