I'm Listening Lord

I mentioned Gordon Jensen a few posts back. I can't get enough of his song, "I'm Listening Lord." The chorus goes:

The voice that tells me which way I should go
The voice that tells me, "left or right, yes or no"
The still small voice that whispers peace to my soul
The voice that calmly assures me I'm one of his own

Man, to me it just doesn't get any better than that. Sometimes I think that I'm the only one going through anything. How wrong I am at those times. I know so many that have struggles. I was talking to June, a friend I've known for a very long time. As we sat and discussed so many things, I realized, we all are in the same boat! We all need to say, "I'm listening Lord!"

If we ever get to a place that we think we've made it and can do it on our own, we are in for some deep trouble. More than ever, I know that I need to listen to his voice. There's so much noise around us. TV's, stereos, cars, traffic, other people's opinions, ad infinitum. But, it's God's "still small voice" that needs to get through. I hope I never get too busy that I drown out that voice. I need him too much! I remember like yesterday when I knelt by my bed at sixteen years of age and gave my life to the Lord. I listened! Lord, please remind me, I need your voice. He loves us. Until soon, may you be filled with his presence!

  1. I love Gordon's songs, "Cherish That Name" and "Tears are a Language (God Understands.)" Talk about an under-rated songwriter!
