Covering my angst with the soothing wisdom from my mother's prayer journals

Are You Listening?

1 Comment

If someone was listening in on my cell phone conversations or reading my emails, would that person come to know The Lord? That thought popped into my mind as I read the latest Tweets about government agencies listening to the conversations of American citizens. Could we, as believers be covert witnesses?

When I was little, Mother told me that God was everywhere and He knew everything I did and said. That gave me pause for thought and helped me be relatively well behaved during adolescence and my teenage years.

This was during the sixties when the gurus of change pushed boundaries and urged young people to do whatever felt good.  Mother’s observation that God saw everything helped me avoid some feel good stuff that had lasting scars and consequences.

Lately, as I read emails, Tweets and Facebook postings discussing security vs. privacy, I realized again how blessed we believers are because no matter which side of the issue we stand, our Savior stands above it all offering ultimate security because He knows all.

In her journal Mother wrote, “Living a life of purity and love; leading others to Christ as we share our faith, doing good works in Christ’s name – all of these are materials that may be sent on ahead. (Billy Graham – Hope for Each Day)”

Again, Mother has provided good advice and if I attempt to follow it, maybe, anyone who is listening will want to know more about Him.

Grateful for so many things, especially the peace He gives and the opportunity to tell it to my kids, grandkids and anyone else who wants to listen. Many read my first book In My Mother's Words, and I have recently published my second book, Heart Whispers from the Old Testament. Both are the result of the prayer journals my mother gifted me her last Christmas. Those journals were full of the wisdom of a Faith Walker and had to be shared.

  1. Wisdom is a blessing of heredity. What a difference it makes to see things through our Father’s perspective…
