Mandisa God Speaking
When I first heard the song God Speaking by Mandisa, I was driving in my car and I was so touched by what I heard that I began sobbing. I was having such a hard time that day questioning if what I was going through had any purpose. Intellecually I know that God has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. I came to a deeper realization because of this song that every circumstance in our lives is an opportunity for God to speak to us and tell us how much He loves us. In tears at just the moment I needed an affirmation that this was true, I looked at a billboard that had a picture of Jesus on the cross and the caption "Jesus.....the only way to God. I pray I will never forget the day I knew without a doubt that God is intimately involved with every aspect of our lives. Have you ever thought about how everything that happens is an opportunity for God to speak to us? Have you ever pondered the thought that God loves us and that He is drawing us to Him? Through every crisis, every situation in our lives God is speaking to us if we would just hear Him. He wants no person to perish, but for all to come to repentance through His Son Jesus Christ. Music is by Mandisa from her album True Beauty. Graphics by Sharri of Sharris Graphics.
