His still small voice

John 10:3-4

" The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice."

 

Over the past month I have come to realize that God speaks to me personally and God has been taking me on a  journey of learning how to discern His voice. 

 

While prayer walking down Bangla road with my team on Tuesday afternoon, I kept hearing his still, small voice and was trying frantically to write it all down before I forgot.  We were walking down Soi Crocodile (a dark street known for its ladyboys. Ladyboys are male prostitutes who dress as women. Most of them get surgery so it is sometimes impossible to tell if someone is a ladyboy or a woman.) God told me

"these are my sons, I will teach them how to be men, you just need to bring them to me."

I didn't know what to think of this because I hadn't had any interactions with ladyboys yet. Fear overtakes me whenever I would think about approaching one, so I just wrote it down and moved on, not making much of it. 

 

Then later that night when we were out doing bar ministry, OF COURSE, God was pushing me to talk to a ladyboy selling himself on the side of the road. (If I wasn't informed on ladyboys and knew what to look for I would've thought he was a woman, like most of the men passing by checking him out.) I almost  walked away out of fear but I knew I'd be so upset with myself if I did. I started, what I thought would be a really uncomfortable conversation, but it wasn't at all. He was so kind and sweet and was longing for identity, worth, and approval like we all are. Nothing monumental happened in our conversation but God opened my eyes and broke my heart in a whole new way that night. The strongholds of sex and lust go so much deeper than what's on the surface. 

Be praying I would build a relationship with him and have the chance to share the gospel with him. 

And be praying that I would grow more in learning to discern Gods voice.

 

 

Thank you for all your prayers. 

Love you all and Miss you,
