I will look to see what he will say to me – Habakkuk 2:1
I will look to see what he will say.
What a strange way to hear You, Lord.
Looking to see what you are saying.
I miss Your voice when I listen more to the world’s noise than You.
I don’t hear Your message when I focus more on me and less on You.
I know at times You speak in a whisper.
I never thought of using my eyes to hear You better.
Looking around me, I see You in my backyard garden and know you tend my growth as well.
Digging into my Bible, I run my fingers over Your Word, Your words, and see in them You printed before my very eyes.
Your love becomes visible in the twinkling delight of Kyla’s eyes and tiny fingers of newborn twins.
Pour out Your spirit upon me so I have the awareness when I turn away from Your face.
When I can’t hear Your voice, Lord, open my eyes to read Your lips.
Help me tune my antenna to Your wavelength of sacred signals.
Help me to listen.
Help me to see what You say.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one struggling with this thing we call faith – then you all chirp in and I know I have many friends on this journey. I do appreciate you all

Wonderful post Jean… We can “hear” our Heavenly Father in so many wonderful ways…
Have a Blessed Day!
Wow…this is great! Thanks so much for this challenge and idea!
When my son was younger, I used to tell him, “Listen to me with your whole body.” At the time, I didn’t know he had ADD, but I knew he was easily distracted. Using my eyes to hear God–maybe that’s the cure to my spiritual ADD?
Having a heart to hear is a wonderful thing!~!
The need to listen more has been on my mind lately. And I love this – “never thought of using my eyes to hear You better”. Thanks!
I love the idea that we can listen to God with our whole body, not just our ears.
