"Oh that today you would hear his voice,"
I did hear the Holy Spirit call me today in a very strong way. He was calling me back to my daily meditations with the Word of God. He was calling me back to get my priorities straight. He was calling me back to His love.
One more thing:
I would never purposefully harden my heart toward the Lord, but when the life of a mom gets busy, sometimes God is the first thing to go. I know that isn't how it is supposed to work, but God isn't whining, or complaining about not having a clean basketball uniform, or griping because he is hungry, or pulling on my leg to read him a story, or needing a ride to the mall. No, God is waiting for me to turn to him, most especially when all the responsibilities of life are pulling at me. He is calling me and you each day; we must only decide to make time to listen.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for your persistent call. Thank you for speaking loudly enough today that I could hear you. Help me most especially when I feel overwhelmed with the responsibilities of my vocation, to turn to you, hear your voice, and bask in your love. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Hilary, pray for me.
