Lessons from the Birdsong
What is it like to truly hear God’s voice?
Is it audible? Does it come through burning bushes or scripture passages jumping off a page? Or does God only speak through sermons, books, and songs on the radio?
As I struggled with all of these questions, I knew one thing for certain: I longed to hear more from God. And I had no idea how to begin.
A silent longing cloaked my heart. I knew something was missing in my relationship with God. I was doing all the ‘right’ things—praying, reading my Bible, and attending church—but still I felt dissatisfied. My faith felt stale and lacked the freshness of the vibrant relationship I once knew. I sensed a soul-stirring hunger to go deeper with God, yet was lost on how to do it.
With a heart full of desire, I began to start actively listening for His voice in the only practical way I knew—birdwatching.
