How well do you feel like you can hear God’s voice?
Do you struggle to discern between His voice and your own?
Scripture says, “My sheep hear my voice” (John 10:27)… What do you think about that?
These are some questions I hope you’ll ponder with me as we start the New Year together. My first guest of 2014 is long time author/editor friend Judy Gordon Morrow. We first met when she was an editor for Multnomah Publishers and have served on faculty at writers’ conferences over the years.
She has an incredible story of God meeting her in the middle of life’s devastation…and a rich and meaningful devotional to comfort you with the same deep comfort Jesus sent her way.
More. Life is full to overflowing, but we crave an illusive more. Via social networking, airwaves, and TV, our culture tells us to strive for more stuff, more activities, more adventure—you name it. Yet we are often left unfulfilled and wanting. Empty, even. With so many demands for our attention, it is difficult to quiet our minds long enough to hear the still, small voice of our loving Father, and to listen to the One who desires to bring us so much more than the noise of everyday life.
Judy Gordon Morrow discovered the more when her world was turned upside down and she knelt before God to seek Him and ask for His help. More than a decade ago, in tear-stained notebooks, she began to pen God’s responses to her desperate prayers. Now, in The Listening Heart, Judy invites you to spend a year hearing from the God Who Speaks—the God who wants to speak to you. Each daily devotion echoes the Father’s love and care for you, offering hope, comfort, encouragement and more—a rich closeness with God that will satisfy the longings of your heart.
Judy Gordon Morrow is a lifelong lover of words and has published poetry, articles, song lyrics, and devotionals. Her first book dealt with pregnancy loss, followed by nine gift books. In her prior “word-lover jobs,” she served as a school librarian, newspaper copyeditor, and nonfiction editor at Multnomah Publishers. She speaks at events for women and writers, sharing her passion for the Word and words.
Join us this Saturday, 1/4 at 11AM CST on AM 630 KSLR or streaming live on www.kslr.com. We’ll be giving away 3 copies of The Listening Heart and we’ll even open up the phone lines and Facebook page to discuss the challenges of hearing God’s voice. Afterwards, I’ll head over to El Jarro’s to continue the conversation off the air…hope to see you there!
