A Still Small Voice

This journey that I am on has took me a few days of the emotional part of this trial to see and hear that still small voice. I have not wanted to be around a crowd lately but my best friend Vicki called and said they were coming over. She has a friend that she asked to pray for our situation. She is an older lady and a Godly woman. Vicki said when she asked her to pray that there was such an awesome spirit there. Then her friend went to find something to send to me. So Vicki brought it over to me. It is a prayer cloth that was given to her a long time ago. She has carried it in her billfold for a long time.
Here is what it says inside:
Essie (that is her name) I long to meet your needs in a supernatural way. I want to bless you more than you can even imagine. Don't hold me back by limiting my ways to your ways. I can make a way where there is no way. Even as Paul sent forth Handkerchiefs, so my servant has sent you this handkerchierf in obedience to me, as an act of faith, that I will meet your need with a miracle. Release your faith now and believe my Word.
Essie, receive this word. I am standing in prayer with you.
Thank you Vicki and Ms. Essie for passing this to me.
It is a treasure and will remain in my purse until I receive my miracle.

Eddie (Vicki's husband) brought my sweet hubby a handmade turkey call.
Randy just loves it. That is all I have heard the last few days.

Isn't it gorgeous? It is cedar and walnut and you ought to hear it.
It made my hubby smile. Thank you Eddie.

I have been decluttering some things and ran across this sweet card.
I don't know where it came from. It was brand new and not signed but I noticed that on the back of it there was a cd and I noticed the words......Fear Not.
The music is beautiful but just look at the name of the songs:
  • The Lord Is My Shepherd
  • Fear thou Not
  • Cast Thy Burden
  • It Shall Not Come Nigh Thee
  • Blessed Are The Meek
  • I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes
  • My Strength Is Made Perfect
  • Poor and Needy Seek Water
  • I, John
  • God Is Our Refuge
  • If God be for us
  • Comforted of God
  • Peace I Leave with You
  • I have loved thee
  • Not in Despair
  • For I Reckon
  • Who Shall separate us?
  • Therefore will I Deliver
  • Be Not Afraid

A Still Small Voice?

I went to Granny's one day and she told me that there was something on the table for me.
I went in there and found this from my cousin Nancy with a sweet note.
It is the most peaceful piano music. I received this on a day when tears filled my eyes many times. It helped me so much.
It is called "My Saviours Love".
The title tells it all.

Today I was at the grocery store. I never look at the books while there but right out in the aisle was this book. It just jumped out at me. I have only read a little bit but so far it has helped me more than you will ever know. I have not shown the whole title because it will tell my story and I don't want to do that publicly at this time. There probably will come that time but this is not it. I have shared with several of you what I am going through if you have emailed. I needed your prayers and strength. It is amazing how many cards and emails that I have received from you all. And of course, all of my blogging friends, my husband, my children and son in laws, my Mom, my Dad, my mother in law, my sisters and of course Granny. I can't say thank you enough for all of the prayers. But I have to tell you that there are 3 special people that have walked through this fire with me and for me. I don't know what I would do without them. They have went the extra mile. You know who you are. I could not do this alone. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. My journey in this trial is not over but is quiet right now. I have been weak, but I know HE is strong. Please continue to pray for my family.
A Still Small Voice?
I am amazed.
Thank you.
I will be posting about Granny tomorrow. I know you all miss her!!!
There is another Still Small Voice.

Listen.......Can you hear HIS Still Small Voice?

You know sweetie, it amazes me how God sends us comfort when we need it, encouragement, a shoulder - He knows what we need before we need it. I am praying for Him to comfort and encourage you tonight, dear one.

Kim said...

I had to print the handkerchief verse. I may need to pass that one on. It is so inspiring. He is there even when we don't think HE is.

Heidi said...

Dear Valerie, having been out of town for the last two weekend, 3-4 days at a time, I have been out of the loop where bloggy visits is involved. My heart aches for you and although I don't know what is going on, from reading your posts it's something that is very heavy on your heart and mind. Please know that my prayers are with you. Yes, indeed, it's amazing how we can hear that still small voice when we need it the most. xoxo

Julie said...

The best part about the still small voice is that it is still and small and consistant--we just have to be the same in order to hear it. That voice has blessed my life on numerous occasions. Thanks for the reminder of that great blessing. I pray that peace comes to you soon. I do know, however, that trials make us stronger and closer to His spirit. Blessings to you and your family. Julie

Karen said...

Don't you just love how God works in the "small" things in life-providing a friend, a book, a CD or 2. He knows what we need even before we need it! Praying that your issues will be resolved-remember that sometimes the battle isn't what we think it is-that it is a spiritual battle with the unseen forces of this world. God Bless.

Glenda said...

Tonight I finally took time to go through google reader and there was your post....I cannot know what you are going through right now but I have a little prayer that I said during a troubled time that might be of comfort. Just e-mail me and I will share it. I'll say a special prayer for you tonight.
