Sunday Stillness – LISTEN

Sunday Stillness – LISTEN

LISTENThinking today of how much I don’t listen to God. How I get going with things and forget – oh yes Lord – what do you think? Then this acronym came to me. I loved the chairs I found at PicMonkey – just what I needed to sit and reflect on His Word.

Please read the wonderful blogs who have linked below.

You are welcome to link if you follow the rules.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends who are listening to God as He speaks.


For those visiting please check out the posts that are linked below. And everyone loves comments.

If you write about God’s Word, join us in providing your link about what God has spoken to you about this week. Thanks so much to the wonderful contributors.

Today is Sunday Stillness.

Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness and @authorjaniscox.

Feel free to pin the picture. Follow me at AuthorJanisCox on Pinterest.

I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog. See the sidebar to enter your email address.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness. I do try to get to your posts every week but I admit sometimes I don’t have the time.

Here are my favourite links for Sunday Stillness:

  1. What a peaceful picture! This also helped to pause and listen to all that the Lord wants me to hear from Him. Thanks for sharing this and for stopping over and commenting on my blog!
    Blessings, Ann @ Christ in the Clouds

    1. Ann,
      Thanks – I too need to remember to take time and listen to Him. We get so wound up in our own little world we forget that He is right here with us.

    1. June,
      Thank you – God certainly led me to the image – I loved it as soon as I saw it and it fit so well with the acronym.

  2. Always blessed when I visit with you! I absolutely love the acronym you came up with! That’s wonderful! Thank you for sharing once again at One Sharendipity. I noticed Pam linked her Sunday post here with you! 🙂

  3. Stopping by from the Faith filled Friday blog hop. Thank you for posting this. Sitting on those chairs on the beach, listening to God would be great !

  4. Love your acronym…and the picture makes me want to sit and reflect on His word. Blessings to you, Janis. As always, thank you for hosting.

    1. Rose,

    1. Geneva,
      Slowing down – this is my Sabbatical Week – enjoying the quiet, rain in the background, evening of commenting to my readers.

  5. What a terrific acronym, Janis! I need the reminder – too often I lose sight and the discipline to seek His will first. May I save a copy of your image for my personal prayer folder? I think I’ll need to refer to these statements often! Blessings to you!

    1. Carrie,
      We all lose sight of that – and go off on our own. As soon as I return to the Source – we are blessed beyond measure. Certainly take a copy – these are to be shared.

  6. We both have a beach theme in our post this week…something about it reveals and speaks of God doesn’t it? Blessings to you on this Sabbath day!

  7. Good reminder to me. Especially because I have been building on and aiming to follow my own acronym, CLOSER, meaning growing and walking more closely with the Lord. And guess what the L stands for. 🙂

  8. Dear Janis,
    Such a lovely reminder / LISTEN – I’ll print it to my calender and on the board!
    Your Bible Study on Psalm 23 must be so rewarding … Are you doing it on a Group with others?
    Blessings to your Sunday,

    1. Nina,
      Thank you for commenting – and for pinning the poster.
      Not sure about Psalm 23? We are learning this for the VBS this week – is that what you mean?

  9. Dear Janis
    Just this week I was asking our Pappa what if I don’t hear when He talks to me and He assured me that He makes certain we hear Him when we need to listen! After all, He spoke the world into being.

    1. Oh Mia,
      I know that feeling – but we sometimes put that barrier in place – with our thoughts. Let’s agree that He is listening and He does hear us, and that way we become stronger and Satan never gets a foothold.
      Thanks for linking.

I love to connect with you.
