The Love that created us is speaking in the silence.

John 10:27-28

“My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.”


How can you hear the voice of God if you are not listening?

If your life does not include setting aside some quiet time for listening…or simply being present…how can you hear God’s voice speak to you in the depths of your heart?

It’s not just the cacophonous noise of the world that we are immersed in…but also the constant noise inside our heads. Most of the time our minds are running with non-stop commentary.

Thoughts after thoughts after thoughts, etc.

So stopbe still…and be silent.

If you listened you would hear words of unconditional love, acceptance and forgiveness. As Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice…and they follow me.”

Why would you follow if you didn’t trust that voice?

Following the Good Shepherd would be a joy!

Notice that Jesus does not say that when his sheep follow him that one day he will give them eternal life. He says, “I give them eternal life.”

It begins now.

If you want to experience a taste of this freedom, if you want to experience amazing grace nowlisten for the voice of the Good Shepherd.

Read and meditate on the words of Jesus in scripture.

Follow where he leads and experience life that has no end…right now.
