The Call of HIS Heart~

When was the last time you were immersed in real life?

Last night, (although, technically, I suppose 2:00 am would be classified as morning) my husband and I were knee deep in pondersosa pines and elk.  As the moonlight flooded the meadows and framed the majesty of mountain peaks, my love and I were serenaded.  All around us we heard the song of bugling elk.

My wild-at-heart husband had brought along his elk call. As I sat breathlessly still,  he called and the elk answered. As I listened, I felt as though I was eavesdropping on their conversation. With each call, the elk responded.  With each invitation, the elk drew nearer.  My husband was soon able to woo these "mighty men" of the mountain into our very midst.

This is real life.

Whether knee deep in nature, lost in piles of laundry, or wading our way through a field of fear, failure, or fatigue,

if we listen,

 if we take the time to be still,

we will hear our Kingly husband, Jesus, serenading us. In whispers of forgiveness, in shouts of majesty, in melodies of blessing, favor and faithfulness, He woos us to Him.  He beckons us to draw near.  He invites us to come into His very midst.

Today, stop.  Listen.  Allow the call of His heart to penetrate your own.  Don't resist.  Don't turn away.  Let His voice be all you are attune to.  Follow the sound of His heartbeat.  Draw near to the sound of His voice.  Step out of the darkness and into the light of His love and grace.  Come into His very midst.

For this....
