God's Touch

I'm always amazed at the many ways and times God touches our hearts, especially when we ask Him to do so. I have had the wonderful privilege of attending a writer's conference/residency in Manitou Springs, CO the past few days. There are only about 20 of us in attendance, allowing us the opportunity to get to know each other better. We are learning many things about the writing world. I appreciate all the information I have been learning and know it will be incorporated into my future writing career. But the times where God has touched my heart the most was through one of the devotional times and one of the speakers. I appreciate all the practical knowledge I've learned, but I'm even more thankful for God's touch and reminder of His love.

God continues to remind me that He's the one who has put me on this journey, and I can trust Him to lead me where He wants me to go.

I praise God for caring about us so much that He chooses to speak to our hearts - to uplift and encourage us, to show us the direction He desires for us to go. Or perhaps it's to make a change or go on a different path. He desires for us to seek Him so we can know His ways and share the hope we have with others.

When was the last time you experienced a touch from God? Is He asking you to do something today that will help show someone else about His love?
