  1. Great message. loved it. very good job. look foward to reading more. Very inspirational. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Dear Lora,
    thank you for your encouraging message. You’re right. How many moments in which I could talk to God and hear his wonderful voice…, but instead I’m desperate of searching things to fill my lonely, boring time. Sometimes it feels shocking strangely that I need so much time to start to pray and listen to God. But when I give him the time and the silent to speak to me he will speak great and encouraging words.
    Now I’m waiting for the next moment without something to work or just to wait, but hear HIS voice.
    Be blessed,

  3. Lora,
    God started calling me to spend time with Him in the very early hours of the morning. At first I was frustrated because who wants to be up at 4:30 in the morning? But as time has gone on, I find I really look forward to this “blessed space” with God. He is there all throughout our days – waiting for us to look up from our business in order to drink in the grace that only He offers. Thank you for a wonderful reminder!

    • 4:30am…WOW! My first thought would be, “How can your brain even function that early?” But, it is amazing how God provides when we follow His will.

      Thank you for the encouragement, Bev. Blessings to you!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this powerful word. I am at home alone most days, and too feel Luke He is calling me to connect with Him more instead of filling the silence with noise.

  5. This struck a chord with me because I also am impatient when I have to wait for people to come to dinner. Never thought of just plunking myself down at the table with God and having a chat until the others show up! Good word!

  6. What a wonderful reminder. I hate being stuck in traffic. I never realized just how impatient I was until my car broke down (again) and my mechanic loaned me their family van. The horn does not work. I never realized how often I head right for the horn in frustration and just how impatient I can be. Traffic is surely another great time to hang out with the Almighty!

  7. Lora,
    Thanks for reminding me to spend time talking and listening to the Lord. I have a tendency to be “too busy” for just talking and listening to the Lord. I am going to work at this.

    You have grown into an awesome, Christian woman and it makes me proud that you were my student in first and second grades. My the Lord continue to bless you! (I still pull out your CD that you recorded and listen to it once and awhile.)

    • Thank you! I was so blessed to have you as a teacher and part of my life as I grew up. When I became a teacher I always thought of you. Because of people like you in my life I have a strong faith and relationship with my Heavenly Father. I love knowing that so many children grow up in our community and continue to be blessed by people like you in their lives.

  8. Oh, this is beautiful. Lord help me to choose spending time with you instead of worrying and being anxious so much. Amen

  9. Lora,

    I am a very impatient person in general. I guess I should use the time waiting to just sit and listen to God and try to hear His voice while shutting out the world.

    Thanks for a great reminder!
