God Speaks Will You Listen?

Have I ever thought of asking the lord what he wants me to do for him today? How can I help you hear his voice? how do I hear his voice and will for me?
You have to have sanctifying grace in your heart in order to hear the LORD. WHAT IS SANCTIFYING GRACE? Sanctifying grace makes you worthy for God to dwell in your heart.
Sanctifying grace is a gift from GOD. HOW CAN I GET SANCTIFYING GRACE? By going to confession and receiving Jesus’ body in the Eucharist. WHAT HAVE I DONE TO GET TO KNOW THE LORD? HOW DO YOU HEAR THE LORD? In the quiet of your mind. You can’t hear the LORD when you are busy with other things all the time, such as talking or texting on the phone, television, computer, video games, sports, and etc.
You need to have quiet time every day for ½ hour, and see if the LORD will talk to your mind. Sometimes when you hear the LORD, you can get thoughts in your head that you know didn’t come from you. If you can’t take ½ hour every day, try to be quiet for 5 minutes, and listen and see if the LORD will come to your mind in your thinking.
Listening to God can give you a peaceful feeling inside of you, and help you learn things, and maybe understand your schoolwork better, and learn your job better. God might give you thoughts that other kids and grown-ups don’t have. GOD loves us and wants to help all those people who want to live a better life. God has a plan for everybody’s life, but it is up to you to find out what the plan is for your life. And the only way you can do that is to spend some quiet time, so that GOD’S thoughts will become your thoughts. And GOD will show you his plan for your life. Sometimes this takes more than 1 or 2 times.
When we have reverence for the Lord, God gives us graces because he loves us. How then, should we give reverence to the Lord? When we come in the church, we should look at the tabernacle and say hello to Jesus, and say, “Jesus, I love you and Jesus, I trust in you.” When you get to your place in church where you are going to sit, and are the closest to the tabernacle, genuflect with the right knee to the floor, because Jesus is at the right hand of the Father. The bible says that someday every knee shall bend, and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord.
