Listen Closely

Okay…

Fun fact about me:

I literally have stacks of scratch paper with scribbled hand-writing scattered all over my house, car, and desk at work. Seriously, dozens of scraps, full of messages that God has spoken to me at random.

I hear it, I write it, I utilize it.

I know what you’re thinking and no, I am NOT crazy, nor have I lost my mind- after 27 years, I believe I have actually finally found it- And now that that’s clear, this is a perfect opportunity to state that I think it’s quite obvious that my “gift” is not that I am an expert at cleaning my ears, well enough that I am able to hear God better than the next person- simply not the case, but I’ll leave it to you to make what you want out of that statement.

Want to know the beauty of this gift? This gift doesn’t just benefit me. Knowing the end result of utilizing this gift to it’s fullest potential and comparing this- I am simply a minuscule part of this much, much grander, divine gift.

Like I said- I hear it, I write it, I utilize it– but I have been so gracefully shoved by God to break the mental chains that were holding me back and finally, I have the guts to SHARE it.

I was so gracefully shoved to share some of my personal messages from God, with you.

If you are reading this, it is not by coincidence. God pulled you here for a reason…

I pray that you are willing to open yourself up to receive His word and factor it into your life in whatever which way your soul pulls you.

Here are several things he wanted me to tell you:

Stop looking for the “one change”. Quit telling yourself “my life will be better once I get this” or “my life would be so much better if only this would happen”. There is no such thing. You will spend a lifetime looking for this “one change”. It’s a fight to get what you want. It’s a campaign… your life is a campaign every day, every hour, and every second.

You will never change what you tolerate. You will never become what you could be until you become angry with who you are right now and where you are at currently.

Google the word “Scour”- do this…seriously. Then put this to action with all things surrounding you and most importantly, within you. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

You must give up the “I” and surrender to the “we”. The root of all sin is selfishness. – To love a person well is to also love the boundary between you.

You never see a U-Haul following behind a hearse. Family, friends, the ones who love you most will be following behind that hearse. So be more aware of how you are choosing to prioritize your time and how you are choosing to love and with whom you are choosing to love but most importantly become more aware of how you make people feel. – Remember this next time you find yourself concerned and focused on material things of no soulful purpose. Time is like money, spend it wisely. You only have one life to live. Your life is set on an alarm that only, I, God can see.

Now reflect on these messages for a few minutes before continuing…

Now that you have reflected, ask yourself this and be 100% honest with yourself… Are you truly happy with how you are currently living your life? If not, write out 5 things you would do if you were handed the courage to do them. Write these things down on pen and paper with the intent of putting them in God’s hand’s today. Give God a chance. He can do for you whatever you want in one day what you couldn’t even imagine doing in a lifetime. – Once you do this, be intentional where you are right now, walk with expectation, and live your life like it’s already happening.

If you just took that step, please continue reading…

You just took that leap of faith and trusted just enough to find that paper and pen and not only just that, you found just enough courage on your own to dig into your core, into your soul’s wants and wrote out those 5 things you would do or want to see happen in order to make your life more fulfilling. Even though this just one simple act, God said to tell you: Everywhere you set your foot in the next 3 days is going to be so much more peaceful because you just realized peace doesn’t come from things, places, or people but from Me, God. I am guiding you. See Me just as you just did and I will show you the way.

Be mindful over these next few days. Open yourself up and watch everything you just wrote down begin to unfold.

If you have any questions, need clarity, insight, or would like to tell me your story/input I’d genuinely love to hear from you. Feel free to e-mail me anytime at caitlyn.johnston@yahoo.com

Much love!
