Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

It’s easy to ignore the voice of the Holy Spirit isn’t it?  We hear Him, and then proceed in our own way.

His voice might be a gentle prodding to put someone else before ourselves.

The whisper may be a hint that we are headed in the wrong direction, one that will lead to destruction.

 Maybe it is the urging to wait in God’s presence until our thoughts become aligned with His.

 It is much harder to STOP…& COMMIT to obedience…but it is there that we are blessed with the presence of God…which only leads to joy and peace beyond what we can muster up for ourselves.

I don’t know about you, but I learn and re-learn this over and over. Duh, right? (we are such stupid sheep!)

I think we all have the “Malcom in the Middle” theme song playing in our heads night and day…

“You’re not the boss of me now
You’re not the boss of me now
You’re not the boss of me now
And you’re not so big. Life is unfair.”

song by Vic Mizzy

No wonder we think it is unfair.  We try to be our own god.

Surrounding ourselves with others who are seeking God with their whole heart…offering encouragement, wisdom and discernment…the Body in action:)  This is what we need.  Encouraging one another daily.

“But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” -Hebrews 3:13

My sweet friend Julie, taught me the 3 P’s:)

Pause, Pray, & Proceed.

It is in the obedience of the pause & prayer that we will hear the Holy Spirit’s voice and listen.  And as it says in this beautiful truth…Whether you turn to the right or to the left, you ears WILL HEAR a voice behind you saying, “This is the way , walk in it.”   -Isaiah 30:21
