Five Minute Friday : Digital Detox and Discerning the voice of GOD {Change}

PSdvgSo, I’ve been doing this Priscilla Shirer study with my sister and my sister-in-love for a while now. I’m not sure if I shared this fact here or on Face Book. First I bought the book and before I knew it, I was buying the workbook. Priscilla shares some serious wisdom in this study. I’ve downloaded and watched all seven video’s and all three products share the wisdom of what she pen’s as the 5 Ms of Correctly Hearing God. I must say the 5 Ms are my practice of Discerning the voice of GOD.

My Grand Daddy, old man D McCullough never owned a people powered wagon. He walked to work every single day of his working life. It’s not that he could not afford a people powered wagon. It’s not that one of his many sons did not try and buy him one. He regarded and guarded this walking time as his time with our Father. The ground is no thing but fair, when we honor our Father. He taught me all he knew one summer in the family garden. He taught me to Look closely at the dirt for the seedling. He taught me to Live in a posture of prayer. My Daddy taught me to search the scriptures for the word he would continually speak. My Mother taught me to submit to my elders and finally this same Grand Daddy taught me to expect the seedling to sprout. I had no idea of the 5 Ms of Correctly Hearing God then, but recently I found them in Pricilla’s Book.

In the work book Pricilla shares a quote from Oswald Chambers …

What hinders me from hearing is my attention to other things. It is not that I don’t want to hear God, but I am not devoted in the right areas of my life. I am devoted to things and even to service and my own convictions. God may say whatever He wants, but I just don’t hear Him. The attitude of a child of God should always be, “Speak, for Your servant hears.” If I have not developed and nurtured this devotion of hearing, I can only hear God’s voice at certain times. At other times I become deaf to Him because my attention is to other things— things which I think I must do. This is not living the life of a child of God. Have you heard God’s voice today? Oswald Chambers

Lately, Face Book hinders my heart. For our Father directed us in HIS word on unity and how to achieve it. We will become a unified church when we put on the perfect bond of unity like a body glove. We will become a unified church when HIS love oozes out of us like melted marshmallows, we will be united as one body. We will be one body is Christ when we stand in HIS power To Love a White Man. We will be one body is Christ when we stand in HIS power to forgive. Forgiveness makes way for love. MLK writes in his book The Strength to Love …

There will be no permanent solution to the race problem until the oppressed man develops the capacity to love their enemies. Martin Luther King Jr. #Ferguson

Lately, Face Book hinders my heart. And, I am super excited to know I am not alone.

I’ve been drinking water with lime juice and cucumbers to detox my system. Now, a Face Book fast is in order to detox my spirit. This is the change my soul seeks and it’s no thing but a Yes.

What hinders the all of you?

It’s no thing but pure joy to join Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday
