When God whispers

My blog posts this month are about listening to God.  He speaks to servants who listen.  But sometimes God whispers.  Why is that? GOD’S WHISPER IS PERSONAL  When did you last whisper to someone?  Chances are, it was someone you love. We don’t whisper in the ears of strangers. God whispers to those he loves […]

Look backward to move ahead

I worked at a toy store during my first years of college.  One day, I watched a little boy stray from his dad. Dad was feeding baby sister, and big brother was asked to wait on the bench with him. He promised his son they would go into the toy store as soon as sister […]

I Unplugged Alexa
