"Your ears will hear these words behind you: “This is the way, walk in it," whether you go to the right or to the left" I3021. But you must be listening.
Today I want to share with you what my Husband was showing me during these honeymoon days... since before we were informed of this honeymoon period, I was asking my Husband for some time alone with Him because I wanted to have much more intimacy with Him, I was feeling I was not listening to Him at all and I wanted to focus only on Him, I had already set the date to take the time of ministerial leave, which surprisingly was the same date that they decided to give us this honeymoon time and it is simply wonderful how He made this possible for me!
Later that week, in a conversation with my sister, I shared that I felt strange, that it was difficult for me to be without specific things to do because I was used to multitasking, and she mentioned that something similar was happening to her and that her Husband guided her to the lesson of "Two-Way Communication", I was feeling anxiety and the need to be busy in every way, then my Husband called my attention to it, He made me understand that I couldn't hear Him like before because there was a lot of noise, many voices and excess of entertainment (music and videos), all the time there was something to do, something to read, something to listen to, notifications, messages, audios, etc...
Although I have left social networks, I have kept YouTuve to listen to music, but apparently, I had been using it excessively, on the other hand, when it was not those things typical of the ministry, it was music when cooking or some lesson to listen to... He said that it was well during a time in my journey when my thoughts were so negative and I needed to cleanse my mind and system of mental discussions and all the bad thoughts that ran amok through the deepest valleys of my desert but that stage is over now.
I felt I had to read that lesson "Two-Way Communication" https://loveatlast.org/living-lessons/week-9-two-way-communication/ and it was the perfect time to do it because it confirmed all that He was telling me at my heart, I just needed to silence all the voices to listen to Him. Dear brides, it is so easy to slip into becoming a wife and stop being His bride!! I praise my Husband who has been faithful in maintaining in me the desire for Him, which led me to miss Him and decide to turn away from everything to look for Him because I know that He saw my heart and my desire to recover that constant communication and He opened me this space to be calm and free to look for Him and spend time with Him.
I praise my husband because in reality these days that I have spent in silence, leaving the excess of music and everything else, I have been blessed by feeding on the bread, the manna He provides me daily through the encouragingwomen.com and the lessons, by hearing directly from Him, which is the most important thing, by resuming our conversations while I wash the dishes, while I do the cleaning, while I do anything because now my ears are available to listen to His voice, to leave the entertainment and let Him be my companion at every moment of the day.
Finally, I want to share this information that my Husband brought to my memory, to teach me that excessive lessons, music or whatever, even if it is good, can result in us not having time for it to have its best effect when MEDITATING IN SILENCE what He is saying and this is how we can also silence His voice:
Do ONE LESSON a day so that (like medicines or antibiotics) each of Your principles has time to do what it should do:
- Too many lessons at once is not only NOT good, but can actually cause you to lose benefits.
- Waiting too long in the middle is also harmful because it allows the ways of the world to enter your mind and heart again.
So I encourage you to follow His lead and rest in His care, He knows how much food each of us needs according to our age, height, and body weight both spiritually and physically!
