Adventures in Flowing in God, Part 3

In Part 2, I learned to allow myself to relax, to get quiet and let go of stress. I was learning to sail. I invited God to reveal Himself to me and open my heart to His presence. I was becoming more focused and aware of Him.   God continues to surprise God is always …

Adventures in Flowing in God, Part 2

Hearing from God should be just like sailing. How many of you row instead of sail?  Unlike rowing a boat that relies on our own strength, sailing is near effortless. God wants us to hear him effortlessly so that our soul will live. “Give ear and come to me” (Isaiah 55:3).   You can learn …

Adventures in Flowing in God, Part 1

What if you believed hearing from God could actually be fun? This beckons the question do you believe God can speak to you? No, I don’t mean just through his Word through interpretation of Scripture, but instead like Moses, Abraham and Paul, who heard His voice. If He does still speak to us today, then how? When? Where?

Be still and know that I am God

If you are observant, you would probably find that when there were significant life changing events in your life, God-incidences may likely have accompanied them.

In no uncertain terms

How many of us can say that God has spoken to us in no uncertain terms? Yet, He probably has and you just didn’t know it. I refer to them as God-incidences, messages of reassurance that come when we most need them. The events in the following story came during a time of great anxiety. …

Be Watchful for “God Incidences”

“Some people mistakenly refer to inexplicable, uncanny, timely, and/or especially appropriate happenings as coincidences. But Christians need to recognize them as God incidences”, says Christianity Today.[1] It was not a particularly warm evening in May that my wife Bev called me to tell me that a guest at her Bed and Breakfast inn just let …
