    As I wrap up another trip around the sun I look back and am once again amazed. I've taken 61 of these trips now. Each one different. Different emotions, different accomplishments, different growth, different ways to see God at work. I see His work more clearly than I ever have before. Ten years ago God, being God, saw it necessary to orchestrate my fall. No need to go into details. I still live the earthly consequences of that. But it is what He has done in the last ten years that I'm so blessed by. 

    You may have experienced this too. God takes our brokenness to bring glory to Him! That's what He started doing almost immediately in my life. I could list song title after song title of how I've been blessed by His comfort, peace, strength and favor. In the last year, this most recent trip around the sun, I have been learning to discern His voice and His desire for my life more clearly. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don't. Eventually He gets my attention and directs me to where He wants me to be. Have you been there? Are you there now? Listen for His voice. It can be in a conversation, a sermon, a Bible reading, even in an article. It says something to you that is truth. God is speaking. We are His sheep, He is our Shepherd. In John chapter 10 Jesus talks about the sheep knowing the shepherd's voice.

    2) “But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep. 3) To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4) When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice."

    My desire in the next trip around the sun is to be able to clearly hear my Shepherd and see where He is leading me! May you see and hear Him more clearly as well! Blessings!
