Five Minute Friday: Whisper — 40 Comments

  1. I am reminded of the Scripture from Matthew 11:28-30. May you surrender it all to His very capable hands. I too am weary Barbie.

    Blessings and love,

    PS. I’m praying for you friend.

  2. Hi Barbie! I’m stopping by from FMF. Thank you for these wonderful truth-filled words. I love that quote you used. I’m trying to live with open spiritual eyes and ears to see/hear God’s whispers. On the edge of the chair in my heart….pressing in…pursuing Him just to hear His whispers. Many blessings!

  3. Oh, that I would be still and quiet just to hear His precious whisper. He is not in the loud noises but in that still, quiet voice. Caring through Christ, ~ linda

  4. ” Life moves fast and I move even faster at times.” THAT is my problem. I don’t make a point to slow down. I’m always looking ahead, racing ahead, moving ahead. In years past I never slowed down. Now, as wrinkles line my face, I am learning to slow down and listen for that still small voice. Beautiful post, Barbie. Thanks for stopping by my home at the www.

  5. Girlie… you KNOW I get this! I am leaning in with you, slowing down and listening with intention. For I know He speaks… He whispers truth and grace and hope and love… so thankful that I am not alone in this season of quietly leaning in, listening for His whisper!

  6. Yes, it is so difficult to be patient and strain our hearts to hear what He says. I completely relate. Although if His voice came like a boom, I’d be too terrified to listen I think 🙂 He knows best – we must cling to this. And for too many long years, I only listened to my own wants and desires and completely ignored Him. Prayerfully I’ll spend the rest of my days doing the opposite. Cyber hugs coming your way!

  7. What a sweet and perfect reminder to slow down and quiet down so that we can listen for His voice. I think we all at times forget to listen carefully for His answers and this was such a beautiful way to say “Are you listening?” Love it.

  8. I can totally relate! I get caught up in the busyness of daily life and my to-do list (cleaning the bathroom today … ugh). Then I don’t hear His voice because all this other stuff is filling up my brain. Every Sunday, in the few minutes before our worship service starts, I pray that the Lord would clear my mind of all the worldly things and help me to hear what HE wants me to hear, as well as to worship Him wholeheartedly.

    • Life would be so much easier if the noise of this world came with an “off” switch, wouldn’t it? Thanks for stopping by the blog. Have a blessed week.

  9. I love this line “Today I will surrender the weight of what I carry into His capable arms.” I pray that I will not only read it, say it for myself but actually do it. I pray once I surrender it to Him I won’t try to take it back to carry again. Thanks for whispering hope to my soul today Barbie.

  10. Barbie, the entire post is beautiful But this spoke loudly to me —> “It comes like a whisper, faint to my natural ear, yet loud to my Spirit.” I am so grateful He speaks loudly to my spirit. Happy Friday!

  11. When you wrote, “Today I will stop striving to hear His voice.” it really spoke to me. Such a great reminder that He just wants us to be still and know . . . believe. He will speak to us. Always encouraged by you, friend. I just love you so much. xoxo

  12. Barbie-

    This is chock-ful of such beautifully written truth. This line is for my journal: “Today I will cease from striving to hear His voice.” Great post! Your words always move me…

  13. I often forget to listen. I get so caught up in the noise of life that i don’t take time to hear him. Something i really need to work on. Popping over for five minute friday xx
