Unplug! JOURNEY TO WISDOM - January 31, 2015 A Reflection on Psalm 95:7b-9 N.A.B. By: Larry T Scripturally "hardness of heart" can mean imperviousness to God's revelation (Exodus 7:13, Mark 6:52) as well as willful resistance to signs of God's presence (Mark 8:17). Those who harden their hearts refuse to see, hear, or acknowledge God's attempts to communicate with them. Oh, that today you would hear his voice: "Harden not your hearts ...http://journeytowisdom-ocbs.blogspot.com/2015/01/unplug.html
The Lord Is Calling SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - January 20, 2015 ... preparation for my Conversion, that I recognized God for who He was. And so, I do not blame Samuel at all for not, at first, recognizing God; even after many calls from the Lord. To this day, it is startling and otherworldly to hear the call of God. It feels like a mystical, divine intrusion. Often I am too busy with my secular life, accomplishing things that I believe are OH, so important, when God enters. He is trying to shift me to to His realm, to call me to what He deems more important ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-lord-is-calling.html

The Greatest Journey, Part 1 HAPPY CATHOLIC* - December 16, 2014 ... the chronology proposed by Fr. Gaechter. He conjectures--from reasons of suitability--that Joseph prudently made this journey to Bethlehem very soon after his formal marriage to Mary. The motive, he believes, was to spare Mary from the questions of the inquisitive Nazarenes once her pregnancy became visible. We later learn that the people of this village were capable of angry rejection of Jesus--"Is this not the carpenter's son?" Another argument to favor the theory of an early arrival (rather ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-greatest-journey-part-1.html
Meeting God in a Dark Cloud. REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - December 14, 2014 In several places in the Exodus experience, Moses encounters God in a 'dark cloud'.

That God does not manifest himself in a very clear way, but chooses to come to ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2014/12/meeting-god-in-dark-cloud.html
