Roger is currently on a trip to Nicaragua. Ministering and checking in on things that we have left in the hands of Michelle and Eliseo to oversee. He's been gone since Valentine's Day and it feels like it's been a month. I usually get to talk with him on a daily basis, but this last week has been different. He's been traveling with two friends from Shreveport to the northeast of Nicaragua and on Rio Coco (bordering Honduras). These are some areas that are remote and don't get consistent cell phone reception. It has been a few days since I have gotten to talk, even if it is just to say "hello, and I love you". Today I got to speak with him for a good 5-10 min. It was sooooo good! I haven't seen him in nearly 2 weeks, but to speak to him and hear his voice, there is nothing like it!
This is the truth in every relationship. The Lord was showing me how much He longs to hear us on a daily basis. There is comfort, joy, peace, love, etc... in hearing His voice! Even if we don't see Him we hear Him. He's there, He's for us and not against us. He's all about relationship. The "knowing" of His voice and His will. We need to be as hungry for the life giving words from our Father as we are from others. How much better to hear His words. The one who loves us more than any other. Wants the best for us.
Talk with Him today. Listen. Hear. Nourish your spirit.
