Thankful Thursday – Persistence

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

Do you not know, child...

I love you with an everlasting love...

Have you not heard, my child...

My whispers in the wind...

Do you not know, daughter...

That I will never leave nor forsake you...

Have you not heard, my daughter...

I am calling you...

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

Has it not been told you from the beginning?

Have you not understood since the earth was founded?

Isaiah 40:21

Have you not heard, children...

The sounds of My coming...

Do you not know, my children...

That time is soon...

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

The LORD is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,

and His understanding no one can fathom.

Isaiah 40:28

Today I am thankful for the persistent voice of the Lord. His unwavering calls...tender reminders...and cries to “come home”...were finally heeded by this prodigal daughter...

I heard...and now I know...my Saviour...

Karen, I can so identify as I was also a bit of a prodigal. Yes, He is persistent and doesn't give up on us. What a great reminder to me of His love on this Thankful Thursday.

Blessings,
Debbie

You deeply inspire me with this posting today.. thank you, thank you, thank you !! A reminder that my God hears my voice, even when calling out in the loudest of noice.. He hears me, and answers in His soft, still and loving Voice.. " I am here, Child, I am here "...

Peggy said...

Blessings Karen... Beautiful! Had you not heard, had you not known...? Had He not persisted...?

Had you not visited me I would have missed this, since I'm in prayer each Thursday and clearly thankful for much... but I too must add... for the persistence in voice of the Lord, gently wooing us to COME!!!

Touched me the most: (and also the part you chose from 66 Love Letters also was the same for me)

"The sounds of My coming...Do you not know, my children...That time is soon..."

such an urgent message and many say "Come Lord, Save us, come now" ... I plead, WAIT...
so many have yet to repent, so many have yet to come home, so many have yet to know Him, hear Him, accept Him, receive Him as their Lord & Savior...

:) hugs my friend and sister in Christ,
Peggy
