I do not know how we listen to God without hearing a sound, but I know without a doubt I have heard loud what another does not hear right next to me. I do not know how out of the blue I know without a doubt what direction I need to take, but I do. How do I feel confident and full of faith when just moments before I was unsure and doubtful? I just know it is my Lord speaking loud within me.
Whispers to the Heart
Whispers to the heart sound loud and clear;
Even louder sometimes, than when spoken in the ear.
The voice may sound like the wind,
But somehow you know the whisper comes from Him.
The slight nod of disapproval when you purposely disobey;
The inner conviction that shows the right way,
The calm nudge of assurance that has peace in its touch,
Agreeing with your decision confidence fills your cup,
The indescribable delight that bubbles up deep inside,
That promises satisfaction as in Him you abide.
Whispers of the heart are not mundane or dull,
They have an attraction that the heart-strings pull.
They draw into repentance, worship, and praise.
They add flavor to your life and life to your days.
Do you hear loving sounds even in this rhyme?
Perhaps you will recognize the whisper God designs.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye.
