God’s Blessings

Thoughts from Jeri Hoag, Principal

Yesterday, I read something I wanted to share.  I’ve been reading the book, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  It has really been a blessing to me.  The devotional thoughts are written from the perspective of Jesus speaking directly to us.  The following is from June 20.

I speak to you continually.  My nature is to communicate, though not always in words.  I fling glorious sunsets across the sky, day after day after day.  I speak in the faces and voices of loved ones.  I caress you with a gentle breeze that refreshes and delights you.  I speak softly in the depths of your spirit, where I have taken up residence.


You can find Me in each moment, when you have eyes that see and ears that hear.  Ask My Spirit to sharpen your spiritual eyesight and hearing. I rejoice each time you discover My Presence.  Practice looking and listening for Me during quiet intervals.  Gradually you will find Me in more and more of your moments.You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me above all else.


Have you let God speak to you lately?  I encourage you to spend some quiet time listening for Him.  Remember, He loves you!  Next time you see something beautiful like the colorful sunset, blooming flowers or a majestic tree, thank Him for the gift of beauty.
