Sometimes God speaks in a whisper, and sometimes He shouts and you can't avoid hearing him. Then there are days where His voice is more like a combo of the two, a whisper-shout that is peaceful but still powerful and insistant that you listen.
Today has been one of those days. But it's good, because at least when God tells you to do hard things you know that you are headed in the right direction. And when you know that God has a plan, that He is good and that you are in sync, it makes all those stupid anxieties seem powerless. Fear has no place in the presence of God.
