American Walkabout


Listen to the Still Small Voice

I hear the still small voice. Call it intuition or the Holy Spirit. For me recently it has gotten much more distinguishable. But do I always listen to it? No, I don’t. Maybe it’s because I don’t trust it? Maybe its because I think its just my own unhinged thoughts. Maybe its because it goes against my head-strong will? But I am learning that it is right, and I can trust it.

It warned me about a place that I stayed. Somehow I just knew that something dark lay ahead before I went there and that I would need to leave in a hurry. Did I listen to this? Yes, I heard it loud and clear, but did I choose to make other plans? No, I didn’t. And now I sit in wake of the consequences and the ruins of an ended friendship. I did have my doubts from the beginning, but I guess I just ignored them for the sake of what seemed convenient. I will listen and heed that intuition next time. I am saddened by an ended friendship, but I will take this lesson to heart, and listen to the warning signs in the future.

“Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves”

Matthew 10: 11-1

On the the flip-side, I am loving this new life. I have been making new friends and great connections. People have been so helpful, and I am being handed work left and right without even looking for it. I even had a guy I just met surfing help me fix my fin with all the tools he already had. God is so good, and I am so incredibly blessed! I am reminded of my time in Taiwan, all the right people came into my life at the right times, I had everything I needed, and I now have some awesome lasting friendships.

Art reflection: Grumpster. There is so much good in life and so much beauty, but he can’t seem to see it, or absorb it. Its sad, but hopefully some day he will find his way.
