Growth

have i missed a word…?

Wondering about my hearing a bit lately…
not physical… but spiritual…

His words don’t seem as loud…
as they have in the past…

It’s not like He’s silent…
I discern His presence…
in unexpected joy…
the prompt to pray…
the desire to give…

But the words… seem to be missing…
it’s more like impressions…
it’s more like it’s part of me… (?)

So I wonder…
have I missed a word… from Him…?
is it more me… than Him…?
or is He becoming more… a part of me…?

Is this a sign of spiritual growth…?
when the current desires… before…
would have been an uncomfortable call…?
words pressed clear…?

I don’t know…

I pray for less of me…
and more of Him…
is this what it feels like…?

This evening’s devotional… Charles Spurgeon says of the Holy Ghost…

As the only truly purifying water He cleanses us from the power of sin and sanctifies us unto holiness, working in us to will and to do of the Lord’s good pleasures.

Morning and Evening

My will… becoming His…?
in a way that does not feel discernible…?
I don’t know… maybe…
“… Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me,
that they may be one, even as we are one. …” —Jesus
John 17:11 ESV
