God never quits speaking to us. It is amazing the way God works to bring about His purpose and to use us to minister to others. Recently I needed to contact my bank and although I tried several times the answering machine answered me. You know how that goes.
Well, I decided to go to the bank in person and a very delightful young woman helped me. We somehow began talking about the Lord and people are always curious about what I do. I am more than pleased to oblige.
She said that recently another missionary came in and that God had taken care of her for a few years while on the field. What an opening. I asked if she had time to hear about how God had taken care of me and she did. She listened eagerly as I spoke. When I finished she said "God wanted you to come in today". I believe he had the timing right also as if I had gone earlier I might have had someone else to wait on me.
She had been worried about her own future. Just a day or two before another minister had come in and left. Then he sent her an e-mail telling her God wanted him to tell her that He would meet her needs, to just trust in Him.
It is truly wonderful how God speaks to us. It can be about weight loss or other problems but He speaks.
We are not worthy but He is. I am glad for Christmas as we are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour, the one who speaks to us through the Holy Spirit.
God bless you and may this Christmas be a wondrous one.

    God's plan is always on time.. I know that's why I'm here at this moment, and getting another blessing from reading about your trip to the bank..

    We receive so many blessings along our journey. Sometimes we never really notice, not until someone points it out to us..

    God is so awesome and does such miraculous things in our lives.

    Wonderful and inspiring blog!!!

    This is a definite advantage the follower of Christ has. When we stay tuned to His voice, we can always be certain He led us to speak out for Him. I once heard that God really didn't need us to do His work, but it is a privilege He has offered to us in sharing the blessing and excitement.

    Beautiful, Irene! I love it when the Holy Spirit guides me to the place He wants me. He has been my strength my entire life and when I came to know Him as my Savior, my life has only grown more beautiful.

    Very well said Irene. It is not that he does not speak to us it is that we do not listen. Maybe it is pride or just not in tune with the Holy Spirit. If we listen and pay attention to him God will guide us in the way he would have us go.
