Is God Talking To ME??

Posted: August 5, 2014 in World On The Edge

0 (2)How do we know if–and when–God is talking to us? Does he talk only to Saints? Or does he talk to ME?

Sometimes all we have to is shut our own mouths, and listen. God often speaks in the silence of our thoughts, or if we’re reading something spiritual, like the Bible. When you read God’s Word, you must constantly be saying to yourself, ”It is talking to me, and about me.”” –Soren Kierkegaard

But conversation is a two-way street. If we want God to talk to us, we must talk to him. Ask questions, and expect an answer just as we would from a relationship with a friend.

And this is the point–a relationship. Relationships with friends, co-workers, boyfriend/girlfriend husband/wife, and family are important components of our lives. So, why shouldn’t we be in a relationship with our Creator? The spiritual part of us is equally as important as the physical part of us, yet so many shy away from it. And others negate it altogether.

I think I’m so fortunate to live where I do, in a place that often discusses God, and these are people who even talk about ‘talking’ to God. There’s no ‘hush, hush’ in speaking the name of Jesus Christ, no hesitance to ‘give God the Glory,’—a phrase often used by local Protestants. I don’t mean in church either. I mean in the grocery store, the Mall, or the dentist’s office. If you want to talk about God, or to God, you just do it.

Make no mistake, God is talking to us–to you and to me. It may be through prayer, it maybe through other people, it may be through difficult circumstances–but He is talking. And it is very important in our relationship with God that we respond. Friend to friend. Child to parent. Lover to lover.

  1. How Kaye finds just the right music to emphasize her blog post is beyond me. It would seem writing takes most of her time, but she’s certainly up on music.

      Thank you, Mary Kay. Sometimes I write a post that reminds me of a song, and sometimes I hear a song that reminds me of something I’d like to write about. If that doesn’t work, I put my topic in the youtube search and see what comes up. 🙂
