People from over 35 different states and 3 different countries have joined us for The Organic God Summer Book Club and Bible Study. We couldn’t be more thrilled. Our prayer for you during the next six weeks is that you fall more in love with God each day-that his beauty, generosity, and mystery overwhelm you as you continue to explore who God is in your own life.
This week, we’re going to dive into the third session of The Organic God Study. For those following along:
- Watch the third session of the DVD this week
- Respond to the third session of homework in the workbook
- Read chapters .004 and .005 in The Organic God book
We’d love for you to interact–here on the blog as well as on our Facebook page. You can even join us on Twitter. Share what ideas or phrases that catch your attention. What God is challenging or showing you through the material. And of course, you’re welcome to send in quirky questions, too, since I’ll be interacting with them throughout our time together.
One of the natural, pure, and essential attributes of God that may be surprising to many, is that our God is surprisingly talkative. In my hunger to know God, I realized that what I need more than anything else is to hear his voice. But what I learned is that even in the silence, God is speaking.
His voice permeates our very lives. From movies to wise friends, and donkeys to weather, God’s voice echoes in surprising ways. This week, you’ll be challenged to listen closely to what God is speaking to you.
I’ve found there is an equation to prayer:
Speaking + Listening + Waiting = Prayer
I’m usually pretty good at the first part of the equation as I lay my laundry list of requests at God’s feet, but I find that when I’m done speaking, I end the conversation. I don’t wait to listen for our talkative God’s response. Listening and waiting just don’t come as easily.
I have a feeling many of you may have this same problem. Our team would love to pray for you. As we venture into exploring what it means to listen to God, may our ears be fine-tuned to his voice and his nudges, and may we respond with patience and obedience.
What else can we be praying about for you this week?
