Psalm 27:8  “Come,” my heart says, “seek his face!” Your face, Lord, do I seek.

In times of frustration and despair, I cry out, “O, Lord, be gracious and come to me!” I expect thunder clap answers and Northern Light visions. I want a strong and powerful God to be in control my every step… except that I really don’t. I want to know that I am heard. My problem is that In my calling out I don’t listen. I don’t listen for that unheard inner voice that comes with insistence and bids me to make up my mind and respond. When I hear that calling in the name of God (perhaps) and go where it calls me to go, doing what I know I am called to do, then I experience the goodness of the Lord in Now. Wait for the insistence of the Lord; put your strength (and your weakness) there; take heart. Wait!
