I dismissed and ignored what I heard, only to have Him repeat himself. (Him being, Almighty, All-Knowing, and All-Powerful). I pretended like I did not hear the Lord and kept on putting my text together.
I felt the inward pause; I recognize the pause.
Because I have preached about the pause knowing the significance of it, still...
On this night, I pushed pass the pause; with good intentions, of course.
Why in the world would I do this, I know better?
The moment I pushed the send button something shifted.
All world confusion and discord broke out into the lives involved. Now, I am in a state of agony from a self-inflicted wound. Lord. Why. Didn't. I. Listen? (See, now, I am calling on the Lord) There's no way to get the text back. There are no do-overs in text-nology. No one has created an app to retrieve-a-text and fix this, even though there's an app for everything else. No. I am stuck. Left to deal with consequences of the decision I made to send the text when the Lord repeatedly tried to intervene.
Heavy sigh. Why? Because I knew my 'why,' the reason I did it.
It is the same reason you ignore His voice. I will be back later to talk about it in part two. In the mean time, think about the 'why' to see if we both are on the same page.
Always Be TruU

Scripture says, "If you hear God speak today, don't be stubborn. Don't be stubborn like those who rebelled."
