But I kept letting my mind wander at the crucial moment. I'd zone back in right when the weather guy was ending his spiel. This didn't just happen once. I spent my entire drive home missing an update that happened every 10 minutes. (Though in my defense, after missing it three times I had the following epiphany and my brain was on a track all its own.)
"His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." ~ Lamentations 3:22-23
"It's taken me years to recognize God's voice: those whispered words of encouragement when I'm down; that sudden sense of caution when I'm ready to launch a testy zinger at someone; those much-needed directions at the street corners of my life; tender words of love when I least deserve them; even humor at odd moments." ~ Virelle Kidder
As reliable as the traffic and weather updates, his voice is speaking. His grace and guidance are present. Sometimes I may let my mind wander. Sometimes I feel like I've *just* missed something that I really needed to hear. But it's ok. If I hang on, set my radio dial, and wait for it, he'll say it again.
And again....and again...
