Listen Really Listen

How do you Know what God is saying.
Some times He speaks to us in dreams or in song.

another way is by the a movie or vision.
he can speak to us by nature, by stories, or by a person.
One of the best ways is by the bible, it can tell us thing we would never think of or know about.

But the all those are nothing if you don't take the time to listen. We can read the bible, we can hear as many stories as we want, but when you go some place quiet where on one can bother you. You can talk to God, and you know what he is a good listener. He can sit there with you for hours and never gets board or pushy. But that some times we only do that when something is going wrong. but that should not be the case, we need to talk with Him on good and bad occasions. But no mater what is going on he will always listen. Some times when God tells us what He wants us to do, we try to explain to God why we can't do that, but while we explain it God we start to see what God is really saying to us. That is when you know what God is speaking
to you cause you start to realise that He is getting you to think with your heart instead of your brain. So when you spend time with God really listen because He mite want to speak to you about something and what ever God says it is very important.
Listen really listen

What do I do at the YWAM campus.

Many of you are probably don't now what my staff position is, but if you do I will tell you

anyway. My position is maintenance staff in the summer I go around the campus keeping the grass cut, the weeds pulled, and the flower beds watered. In the fall I help keep the leaves raked, and I help cut and split wood for the winter. In the winter I help bring wood down from the woodlot and help keep the fire going so the lodge keeps warm cause it can get very cold here in the winter, I also help shovel the snow from the door way cause we get a lot of snow.

But that is not all I do I am also a hop around guy, there are many different departments here on the campus. There is hospitality, house keeping, kitchen, mechanic shop, and DTS.

If any of these departments need help in any way I will be there to help them out.
At first It was hard to do all those jobs, but over the past 2 1/2 years I learned why God had me helping in all those departments. He was teaching me servant hood and that is a very important
lesson to learn, if you learn how to be a servant, every thing you set your hand on will be done right and with a good attitude. I love what God has me doing here even thou it is not as exciting as going over sea's or having a big title like YWAM Director I believe that God has something more for me but for now He has me serving others wrath then my self and I love it. Serving others is one of the gifts God has Given me, all through out my childhood loved helping other people
some times but as got older God started to bring out that gift even more my friend Mrs Rothgab said to me you have the gift of a servants heart cause at youth group I would come early to help set up and stay late to help take down. She loved it when I did that cause it help her out a lot. I love serving God, but another way of serving God is trusting in Him to provide your every needs but that doesn't mean you just site around and do nothing. When you God to provide for you He might just give it to you or He will give you an opportunity to help you get what you need. God knows what is best for you even thou you might want to do some thing else.
