Yeah…I lied. Well, not on purpose. It’s funny what a pastor will do when God steps in and stops him from doing what he had worked so hard to do.

Yeah…that be me. And God.

Saturday morning I was studying for my sermon when I “heard” this voice say, “Hey Bill! put that aside. I have something else for you to do.”

“Say what?”

“Yeah. I want you to put that prepared sermon aside and I want to preach on something else.”

“God, is this you? Am I hearing you correctly?’

“Yes, it’s Me. And yes, you are hearing me correctly. I want you to preach on something else. I had you read and blog about David, Nabal and Abigail on Friday for a reason. Now I want you to put it to use.”

“And how so?”

“I want you to preach what I tell you to preach on Sunday. I don’t want you to focus on mothers but on women in all stages of life. ”

So I did. I called the sermon A Wise Woman and used I Samuel 25 as my Scripture. Shortly after the sermon is done you can find it on the church’s website and listen to the podcast.  I hope you find it challenging and good for your heart, especially if you are a woman.

As for the sermon on Suffering from Romans 8: 18-27? Stay tuned next week for it.  There was an old commerical: “When EF Hutton speaks everybody listens.” Well…when God speaks Bill has to listen.

    When you hear that voice, it’s best to heed it.

    It takes A Wise Man to listen to the Spirit’s teaching to preach about A Wise Woman. 🙂

    From Betty: Bill, love the title and theme of your message, gonna listen to it. I am speaking to some women Thursday night in southern Ill. and of course my theme is Wise Hearted Women. I feel like I have never needed wisdom more in all my life. We are house sitting this next couple weeks and its so good to have peace and quiet. The only noise I can hear is my husband on the riding lawn mower, he is in his happy place. I hope to get some more written on the book. Ok, I am going to listen to your message.

    Wow. I need to pay attention! Too often it’s my way… which never turns out well.

    Thanks for the lesson and example of obedience.
