My name is Penny Burton and I'm from Grace Church in High Point, NC. I'm on the Women's Prison Ministry Team. We were at our local prison a few weeks ago. I felt led to speak and do the music. I asked the Lord what to bring to the ladies and He told me to bring your message on the “Four Keys to Hearing God's Voice.” The Lord helped me to condense it to a 20 minute teaching.
We gave the ladies journals and pens so we could practice it together. I felt led to play the song "At Your Feet" by Casting Crowns before we began journaling. Listening to the song helped the ladies picture themselves at Jesus' feet.
It was amazing for me to watch this because I was in front of them while they were listening to the music and writing. Before we left one lady was able to come up to me and tell me what had happened to her. She said, "I've only been saved for a few months. I've been praying and asking the Lord to speak to me. I told the Lord, 'I want to hear Your voice.' I know Jesus sent you to teach me how to hear His voice."
I wept when she told me this. Thank you for your pursuit of Hearing His Voice and sharing this with others. All Praise to the One who whispers to our hearts!
