In February, I found myself hibernating to hear the heart of the Father.
I began the month listening to the audible book by Shawn Bolz, "Translating God." Even though the main subject was the prophetic word, I heard the theme of the Father's heart throughout.
I kept my eyes on my absolute yes list. This meant I went to the gym, although not as much as I would have liked. I made phone calls to friends and reached out to a couple people I hadn't talked to in years. I kept my list posted on my desk as a reminder each morning.
"I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there." Hosea 2:14 NLT
Winter wilderness days.
This is how I would describe my current season of life.
Do I like the wilderness? Absolutely not!
Nevertheless, I wouldn't change it because the truth is clear.
Jesus led me here and continues to lead me.
I hear His voice, through his Word, his words in my spirit, and through my podcasts and books and all the things I love and surround myself with.
As we leave the month of February, I am beginning a new study for Lent on the book of Isaiah. I bought the gorgeous study guide to follow along with She Reads Truth. It's a bit pricey so you can simply download the app and find the same study there for $2.99.
I've never actually had a prayer for Lent or given up anything. On the weekend thoughts kept coming to me to do so.
You might think about simply clearing space to hear the heart of the Father in the days ahead. Perhaps you are walking through a wilderness and need to hear the whispers of your Savior. Maybe you are sensing a need for change in your life. Why not think about joining me this Lenten season? Is God whispering to your heart in any of these areas?
