Restoring Our Womanhood

Scrap of Faith is a Christian Crafting Site dedicated to inspiring women in their faith and in their hobbies.

Each month a new theme will be posted, with verses to encourage, with challenges to inspirire you both in your faith and in your craft. We hope that you will jump on board the journey of Restoring your Womanhood and that God will use these challanges to draw us closer to Him and also give us a purpose in our roles.

We would love to hear from those who are following along so please leave a comment, and share a link to your blog :-) Also on the Scrap of Faith forum there is a weekly thread for encouraging each other through the journey.

There are so many things to listen to.
The ipod....the television.....the children arguing......
We have so much competing for our attention that we get very good
at not listening. Selective deafness. Choosing what we want to hear...what suits us to give attention to.

There is a scene that happens too frequently at our house. I've given offspring have chosen not to listen. There is a consequence. That doesn't go down so well, resulting in the next lot of instruction also not being listened too. It is a downward spiral that inevitably ends it tears. I'm sure you've seen it. I get to the end and in desperation say..."If you had just LISTENED to me at the beginning, NONE of this would have happened". How often has God said that to me...or you...?

Listening is a skill. It is active. It requires attention and effort on our part. It requires a response.
James 1:22 says " do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourself"
God wants us to listen to him. Funnily enough, he doesn't yell.
You need to be quiet to hear....but then you need to do.

Kat has a great signature line. "The closer I get to Jesus....the less I need to shout".
Love it :)
