Come as a child...

Lord, teach me to listen. The times are noisy and my ears are weary with the thousand raucous sounds which continuously assault them. Give me the spirit of the boy Samuel when he said to Thee, "Speak, for Thy servant heareth." Let me hear Thee speaking in my heart. Let me get used to the sound of Thy voice, that its tones may be familiar when the sounds of earth die away and the only sound will be the music of Thy speaking voice. Amen.

(from The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer)

Sunday Blessings to you all

Dear Candy~~What a perfect scripture for today. There is so much 'noise' out there...we just need to 'listen' to the calm.
Thank you for posting this today.
Blessings and Hugs,

Candy - This picture truly shows
Proverbs 22:6 (New American Standard Bible)

Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Oh Candy, I write this with tears in my eyes. Make me like a child again comes to mind. As a child we were so giving and not demanding. We listened and we prayed and really felt God talking to us. Sometimes as an adult we forget that. We are not patient, and we want to hear the answer we want to hear, not always what he has to tell us. Thank you for sharing this beautiful Sunday evening with me Candy. It has so opened my heart to listen more. Country Hugs, Sherry

Oh how sweet the sound of God's words in this day and age.
I love your post today it is truly a simple message if we would just stop long enough to be young at heart again .
Thank you so very much for the blessing.
I have an award for you over at my blog.
I have been trying to get blogger to let me post for two days and finally got thru this afternoon.

Have a very relaxing Sunday evening and blessings to you during the coming week.
