Personal Word

Dear One, you need to sit before Me and listen. Listening will enable you to see, to know, and to do what I have in mind. Your journey to this point has been tailored by your willingness to listen, combined with the times you went your own way.

As you purpose to listen, you slip into the yoke I have, the yoke which I lead. What I lead, I enable. I am the vine, you are the branch. Whenever you attempt to be the branch, joy and My equipping end. Then it’s just a matter of time before you and the people around you become discouraged and frustrated.

Lean on Me, not on your own understanding. Let Me be the One you run to. For I alone have plans to bless and not curse you. Come to Me, and I will give you rest and godly perspective.

This is the word I received this morning in my time before the Lord. I don’t very often publish these personal words, but felt compelled to do so today. My prayer is that these words hold meaning for you.

I am a writer and counselor, who embraces joy and holds tight to hope. I live with my husband Ken, of 44 years, and he is the love of my life. I enjoy inspirational and devotional writing, home decor, gardening, and being in community. My husband and I are missionaries to children in Washington State, and love the privilege of being with them.

      1. Riiiiighhhhhtttt…It’s a breathtaking and awe-inspiring feeling. It’s humbling, joyful, and many other adjectives. No wonder sometimes all one can say is Hallelujah!!

  1. Thanks Jacquie for sharing this. We must listen. It’s harder to discipline myself to do this, because there is so much to pray about. But remaining quiet is nice because it enables us to just exhale in His presence. It’s a form of rest for us. Then when He speaks His words will replenish us.
