Message from Bruce Consier, Athletic Director

“O People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears , He will answer you.
Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your eyes will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
Isaiah 30:19-21

This passage has been on my heart and mind since the beginning of summer. I cannot escape it. When I open my Bible I am drawn to the passage. When I am searching on the internet I am drawn to see what others have said on this passage. There must be a message that I need. But it takes me way too long to get it.

Pastor Bill Hybels recently released a new book called the Power of a Whisper, Having the Guts to Respond. He states that God speaks to us in a whisper. Do we hear the whispers or are we too busy to listen? In our society today we have constant communications coming to us. I-Pods, Blackberries, Remote access to our computers, Phones that travel and go everywhere with us. As communications/technology advance are we losing a connection to hear the whispers of God.

I want to do what God wants me to do. I am confused at times. Why does bad stuff happen to me-where is God? But God is always there. In fact He is right behind me telling me what to do, where to go and how to do it. I just have to relearn to hear God’s voice at all times.

I believe that we all need to put aside the things of this world and listen to the whispers of God more. Because in His whispers He is encouraging us, He is loving us, He is telling us how to get through this life.

As we go through this school journey this year, I pray that all of us, especially me, will listen to the whispers of God so we can impact this world for Christ.
