Seasons Change

I have owned several copies of Oswald Chambers’ book, “My Utmost for His Highest”. He seemed to be so legalistic, expecting more performance than I could ever muster.

But then a friend tweeted and posted a FB request that everyone read a particular entry. I did. And I’m hooked.

I will note that I have an updated version, which is much easier to read than the original.

My listening notes for today:

Faith by its very nature must be tested and tried. And the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God’s character must be proven as trustworthy in our own minds.

– Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, October 31

A Month of Listening

I’ve signed up for NaBloPoMo for the month of November. There’s no assigned theme for November, so I will be focusing on “listening”.

Ultimately, it will be listening for God’s voice in my life, and taking note of anything that I find worth sharing. One of the spin-off benefits I hope to see is the practice of really listening to the people in my life as well.
