Thought of the Day !!

And after the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. – 1 Kings 19:12-13 (NIV)

What are the distractions of your life?  Is the telephone ringing?  Are you pulled to the computer to check your email?  Is the TV blaring or the kids yelling?  Is work always on your mind?  

We can become so distracted with life that we miss the gentle whisper of God.  Be careful not only to make time for simply being quiet, but also to listen through the busyness of the day.  God may not come to you in a burning bush.  He may chose to come when you least expect it, whispering your name.  So be ready...and listen.

In the love of Christ,

greg

Hello, Pastor Greg...

I just "accidentally" found my way to your blog after browsing a couple of other blogs. When I saw "Hernando, Mississippi", I sat up and paid attention, as I have relatives there! I'm a member of Christ United Methodist Church in Sugar Land, Texas. I play in both of our adult handbell choirs and in our Sacred Harp Ensemble. And, of course, I also sing in the choir! I was born and raised in Houston and have been a Methodist all my life. My great-grandfather was a Methodist circuit rider in Central Texas, way back in the early 1900's.

I'm looking forward to being a faithful follower of your blog.

Your sister in Christ,

Sharon in Sugar Land

Nice to meet you Sharon. So your great grandfather was a circuit rider, huh? That's cool.

I post each day's Thought of the Day !! on my blog. I also send them as email or post on Twitter and Facebook. If you would like to see them through one of those other ways instead, let me know.

Have a blessed day.

In the love of Christ,
greg

So nice to meet you, too, Greg. And, a big "Amen!" to your message yesterday. One of my favorite hymns is #395 "Take time to be holy; speak oft with thy Lord...". My all-time favorite hymn is #454 "Open my eyes, that I may see glimpses of truth Thou hast for me.....Open my ears, that I may hear voices of truth Thou sendest clear.....Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!" Wow.

May God continue to bless you in your ministry.

Have a great day!

Sharon
