Are You There God, It's Me Rebecca

The Lord has only spoken to me one time in my life. It was a core-shaking, awakening, totally freak me out in a good way kind of speaking. Ever since then I take even the smallest whisper as the Lord trying to tell me something. And His timing could not have been more perfect. 

Yesterday at church, one of my favorite songs came on, "Forever Reign". I like this song because of the chorus but never really found comfort in it until yesterday. 

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I'm made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I'm letting go

Ok, I got it. At this time in my life, I really need to focus on giving everything to God and embracing Him and what works He is doing in my life; regardless if I understand it or not. 

He didn't stop there because I still had a little resistance and fear inside of me. 

As the sermon begins, the intro pops up on the screen and I was intrigued. The verse on the screen was Deuteronomy 31:8; The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Tell me more!

I kept waiting for the reference back to that verse throughout the message but it never happened. That was confirmation to me that I was meant to hear that verse. 

He still wasn't done though. 

The Biblical reference in the sermon was actually Romans 12:17 but my eye landed on Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. What I found comfort in was the middle of the verse, be patient in affliction. The Lord tells us that we will have trials in our life that will bring us closer to Him and that will strengthen us or change us always for the better, for the Lord only wants the best for us. 

I may not understand what is going on in my life right now but I just need to rest assured that there is a purpose and a plan for my life. 

All within a matter of minutes, I had been wanted, comforted and instructed. Even if they were three seperate whispers spoken to me, I heard all three loud and clear!
