Shh.. Listen

He cares for us with an everlasting, gracious love.  He is the God of all comfort.

     Can you hear Him in your sufferings?  He is the Comforter of all. Sometimes we get so caught up in what we are going through that we miss the nudges of His purpose.  When we pay attention to the little things, then we will see the great blessings bestowed on us.
     I've not felt well since Wednesday but I'm going to share with you the whispers of God to me and not the trial.  I've had no fever.  I've had sufficient medicine to clear things up.  I've had great care from people who truly care about me.  I've had friends praying for me and anxious to visit with me when I'm better.  I watched a movie with a friend and it pointed out how much we are worth to God and how our lives are about a transformation, not just a destination.  I've seen His healing grace make sick friends well recently.  I've seen people far away being used as a vessel to share the gospel with others.  God is the ultimate multi-tasker, as He is constantly there for us and working for our good.  Therefore, look for the good.
     So I find comfort in seeing God's hand at work all around me.  The noise of our trials is often our inner voice trying to 'fix' things over and over in our heads.  Shh... Listen for the whispers.
