In that deeply spiritual moment I was expecting a voice from heaven but all I could hear was the dog in the next room whining.
We had just read the Bible verse ‘Be still and know that I am God’ and then there was an opportunity to be still in order to focus on God.
At first I decided that the whining was a distraction and so I tried harder to focus on God, but then the dog started scrabbling at the door.
What hit me in that moment was that the dog was desperate to be with his owners and he wanted them to know that he was there.
I felt challenged in that moment about how much I want to be with God?
Do I want to attract God’s attention and am I persistent, consistent and determined in the way that I talk and interact with him?
I was expecting a voice from heaven but instead God spoke to me through a dog. He certainly does move in mysterious ways!
How is God trying to speak to you and are you listening?

I am guilty of not pushing in to meet with God and spend time with Him. Excellent illustration with the dog. Thanks for sharing.
