Daily Devotion – We Listen, He Guides

We Listen, He Guides

This devotion in part is drawn from my archives. It’s a few years old now, but still, I hope you enjoy it.


We Listen, He Guides:

She finally did it. Madison got her driver’s license and she’s ready to take on the world.

And so, our days have been filled with patience, with practice, and more practice yet. She’s already a good driver, but as with any beginner, she has a way to go yet.

With eyes fixed on the road, the sound of my voice carries her through. Sometimes we slow down, sometimes we speed up, and other times we come to a complete stop, counting “one, two” before proceeding again.

That’s how life is, for the faithful. The few who humbly let God take the lead. The ones who slow down to listen and value His Word. The ones who are ready and willing to grow.

We listen, He guides. With an ever-watchful eye on our lives, the sound of His voice leads the way. And, as a loving parent teaches their child, so the Lord teaches His.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (Psalm 32:8, NIV)

Tilling the Soil

Tune out your voice this week as you listen to His. Let go of impatience as you trust in His timing. Let go of frustration and let His plan unfold.

Planting Hope

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (Psalm 32:8, NIV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.

She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.

Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
