From the Throne of Grace

When I say, "The Lord spoke to me," I don't mean I heard an audible voice. I mean in my heart, where Jesus abides, I have an impression, a nudge, a sentence or two that I know cannot possibly be from my pea brain, as I'm not that wise by myself. So please bear that in mind when I share the following whispers from the Throne of Grace:

"Don't be quick to point your finger at someone else and say, "They are so needy." You are needy yourself--you just cover it up well."

"The answer to operating like Me and living out of My life instead of your emotions and flesh is: love. Everything I did and do is motivated by love."

"Speak what you believe; not what you see or fear. Say who you are; not how you feel."

"When are you going to receive my peace? After the storm has gone by, and ANYONE can see it's calm?"

"It's easier to serve Me like Martha than to sit at My feet and listen like Mary. Martha wants to nourish Me; Mary lets Me nourish her."

Which of these resonate with you? Does the Lord speak to you in odd moments? How important is hearing His voice in your walk with Him?


  1. They all speak to me, Jeanette. Thank you so much for sharing what the Lord spoke to you. I really like your explanation of how the Lord speaks to you. With the way you explain it, maybe the Lord is speaking to me at times too.

    I love the pictures you included with this post.

    Blessings Jeanette and have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks for sharing. He speaks to me in unctions... ideas, scriptures, thoughts... well, there is no limit to his voice really, as long as I don't expect audible words :)

  3. Barb and Marja: Thanks for your comments. Yes, He speaks in all different kinds of ways, if we listen to Him.

  4. We each hear from God in different ways. I sat in church last Sunday. During the time of greeting those around us, I went and introduced myself to this couple. They told me their names and that they were our new youth director's parents. Several years ago, a friend of mine told me about this gentleman. He worked at the hospital where she worked. He had the same physical issues our son had. I felt blessed to see this gentleman with a family of his own. I sat there thanking God and crying at the same time/

  5. I love my precious daddys voice.

  6. He keeps telling me to, "hold steady." When things look awful, "Hold steady. I'm working."

  7. Wow, those are so good!!! I like the one about saying who we are, not what we feel.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
