GOD PAUSE: I'm so thankful to be able to connect with you for a minute right now. In my quiet time a few minutes ago, I came across a Bible verse that talked about experiencing the secret of growing in God --- and experiencing His favor. Proverbs 8:34 says “If you wait at my doorway, longing to hear a word for every day, joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I will say.” My dear friend, when you and I strategically take time to listen, God will talk to us. The first move in on our part. God will do His. Dear Papa, we desire to hear you talk with us. So we make the effort to come and listen. Amen and amen.
