LISTENING TO GOD FORUM ~ This international forum is for those interested in developing a listening relationship with Jesus and in experiencing His freeing Truth. It's a place to learn, share stories, ask questions, and share what Jesus is doing in and through you. Are you working through the book on your own? Have you started an inner-healing study? I'd love to dialogue with you today!
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do
flows from it” (NIV).
“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the
course of your life” (NLT)
“Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts” (MSG) “Por sobre todas las cosas cuida tu corazón, porque de él mana la vida”
The Bible teaches us
that God is everywhere. “Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I
flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed
in Sheol, You are there!” (Psalm 139:7-8 ESV). God is present to you and He yearns to communicate His thoughts to you!
“So that they should
seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though
He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our
being,” (Acts 17:27-28 NKJV). He is not far away ... He is very near!

A Spiritual Formation Listening Exercise
Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit; what are You seeking to communicate with me about my heart, about Your
thoughts toward me, about my relationship with You or about my relationships
with others? Use a blank sheet paper to jot down the things that come into your
heart and mind through the gentle urgings of His Spirit as you wait on Him. You
need not feel any pressure … this in not about you coming up with something. It's all about Him!
