Listen, honey!

Listen, honey.

I am from the deep south.

I need your complete attention. As we southerners will sometimes say, “Listen, honey.”

Tonight as I type this right before my weary eyes close, and today’s #raralinkup ends, I just want to tell you this one, little, super important thing, and I need to be sure you’re listening.

So, listen, honey.

Your words matter.

All you beautiful blogging friends that have come into my life in the past few months, your words are amazing.

In a world full of voices trying to be heard, the God of the universe is listening to you, and you have His undivided attention.

world of voices

Keep writing the words He gives you.  The world needs to hear what He told you to say.

Don’t give up because you think no one is listening.

Go back to the beginning when He put this dream in your heart and remind yourself why you began.

You write for Him.

Keep it up.

Don’t quit.

Your voice will go where He sends it and will touch the hearts He opens to hear it.

Keep speaking.

Let go of anything holding you back, including all the demands you put on yourself, and just say what He tells you to say when He gives you words.

Ditch the clock & the calendar and just listen to Him.  He turns His ear to you.

“I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.”     Psalm 116:1-2

Your words matter.

I am cheering for you!

This video is my gift of giggles to you, friend.  Enjoy.
