Luke 1:45

“Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.”


Have you ever heard the voice of God in your heart?

Have you ever just had a thought pop into your mind out of nowhere…that seemed to be an answer to a question or problem?

Did you ever get an internal nudge to do something for a good cause?

I’ve had many such promptings…but I can’t say I have always acted on them.

Nor can I say that I have always believed that what I thought I was hearing would actually come to pass.

A few years ago when I was amidst my CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) training, I was confused as to how my one calling to write and sing spiritual songs seemed to diverge from this new calling to listen to and pray with people who were sick.

Then one day while listening to a priest talk about a man who uplifted a hospital patient with his guitar, I heard in my heart: “What if I asked you to play for an audience of one?”

So…I talked to my CPE supervisor who said it would be a great idea for me to bring my guitar to patient visits.

Today, I sing my songs on occasion to shut-ins and nursing home residents.

Many times…I still have doubts when discerning God’s messages and prompts…but I am indeed blessed when I look at prior promises…fulfilled.
