Tuning In

My alarm clock didn't go off this morning. I would probably still be snuggled into my blankets if Greg's phone hadn't started to ring. He darted out of bed and straight into the shower as I yawned a sleepy yawn and wondered when I'd be going to the store to replace the clock.

This happened yesterday as well. I needed to be up early to take care of a few things before church. No alarm. Fortunately my body clock woke me up in time for church.

I couldn't understand why this kept happening. The time was set for 6am (not pm), the alarm switch was turned to the 'ON' position, and there was no power outage. What was going on? I turned on the radio switch and that's when I heard it...complete silence!

Instead of the sound of friendly banter from the morning deejays, I heard nothing. I turned up the volume. Nothing. I wiggled the station dial and then there they were... my favorite morning crew.

I laughed to myself as I walked across the house to my office. God doesn't normally lay a message on my heart to share with you in a blog until Monday morning. Today was no exception! How many times have I missed hearing from God because I wasn't tuned in? Alarms He sounded in my spirit. Information or encouragement I missed out on. All the sweet music He sings over me. I miss it all when I'm not tuned into Him!

What are you hearing? Do you feel God speaking to you through the Holy Spirit in your life? Or do you feel that you're stuck in between channels and only hear silence? Pray that God would reveal anything that may be blocking the signal and help you tune into Him again.

Be blessed,

“... then listen to me; be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.” Job 33:33
