5 Things to Help You Hear the Voice of God

A lot of times I am asked the question, “How do I hear the voice of God?”  My response to that question is, “Are you listening?”  What I have learned from my own personal experience is that the Lord is always talking to us whether it’s directly to us, through someone else, or through his written word, we just aren’t always listening.

Sometimes we’re not listening because he’s not talking to us the way WE want him to talk to us.  We want to hear the voice of God for ourselves but don’t want to listen when God speaks to us through others.  Sometimes we’re not listening because we really don’t know when he’s talking to us, and other times we are simply tuning him out while listening to other voices that oppose his word.

In a world where we are constantly being bombarded by the voices and opinions of others, including our own, it is crucial to know and recognize the voice of the Lord when he is speaking and to obey him.  In last week’s blog I talked about 5 Things Keeping Us From Hearing the Voice of God. To help us get to a place where we are hearing and obeying the voice of God, I now want to talk about 5 Things to Help Us Hear the Voice of God. Continue reading

My Miscarriage Story Pt. 2

Since this month is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month I’ve decided to share my miscarriage story. Last week I wrote about the two miscarriages that I had last year and how they had impacted my life. This week I want to share YouTube videos that I posted during those periods of loss. In the videos I talk about the raw feelings associated with losing a baby as well as how it feels to have your first period afterwards. That first menstrual period after miscarrying was probably one of the hardest things to go through apart from actually miscarrying because it solidified that my baby was no longer inside of me and I had to really face that reality. I hope that by me sharing these videos someone can be encouraged that they’re not alone in what they have gone through or may be going through right now. Continue reading

My Miscarriage Story

Since this month is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month I decided to share my miscarriage story. It’s something that I’m very open about because when I got pregnant I was not aware of how common miscarriages are. I was afraid that maybe something was wrong with me or that I couldn’t have kids, but the truth is that approximately 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Continue reading
