The LORD said, “My word . . . that goeth forth out of my mouth . . . shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please.”
– Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
I love hearing another’s story. It seems we never meet a person without a story. When we listen into their story we most likely will hear the moral compass of their life story. A WORD that gave design to their vocation, their hopes and dreams and yes, even things that seemed off course but found needful in their life journey as it was packed into their emergency travel kit.
Do you ever listen to yourself telling your story to others? Or, read what you journaled when you recorded your story?
Lazy, hot, steamy summer heat in No Virginia makes air conditioned coffee shoppes and ice cream digs hot spots to share and hear story. Recently, I took mental notes of listening as storytellers told their dot to dot stories. In meditating on words they told I found I could just focus on Isaiah 55:11 and find a basket of words to hold dear to my heart. Rejoice with them! Find Hope! Applaud!Peace! And, many other wonderful energies that bubble in their space.
It seems we find their hour glass with a sand flow as well as ours when we watch and heart listen from this view. “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done…”
(Isaiah 46:10, NKJV)
