The Voice

Those of us that are Christians know the voice of our Shepherd.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: – John 10:27

A while back I shared how I hear God speak and had been honing that ability for years. I first heard God speak to me when I was yet a young teen. At the age of twelve, maybe thirteen, He told me I was called to ministry.

In sharing such a part of my life I got a couple of responses in the conversation that I must be schizophrenic. Of course this comes from people that don’t understand. So to them I suppose I’m in need of mental intervention.

I guess they never have considered that there are voices other than God’s that whisper such denial of this ability. I’ve admittedly heard several different voices in my lifetime, but I know God’s voice distinctly.

I have stories of the results of hearing His voice. I haven’t the time to write all of it at this moment. Several times I have seen the results of hearing His voice. I cannot deny Him.

Prayer is conversation. This is the main way to talk with God. We talk. We listen. If you say you never hear God talk, do you take time during prayer to listen?

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
