THE VOICE Vol 11 No 26

Dear Friend,

Late one afternoon I was jogging around a high school track and let's just say I wasn’t exactly flying around that oval. On the other side of the track the high school track coach was working with one student. I could hear the coach holler to his runner:

"Square your shoulders!

                Lift those knees and step higher!

                                Lengthen your stride!

                                                Pick up your pace!"

I suddenly realized I was flying around the track at a terrific rate of speed (for me)!

I’d squared my own shoulders, was lifting my knees and stepping higher, lengthening my stride, and picking up my pace. The voice of the coach prodded me into action!

The Voice of the Spirit of the God is prodding you in a similar way:

“Seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

                “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened.” Matthew 11:28

                                Therefore let all the faithful pray.” Psalm 32:6

May you hear the Voice of the Spirit prodding you to draw near to the Lord who loves you dearly and who has already drawn near to you!

With joy - E. Stanley Ott
