God Says Listen

My Take

DiVoran Lites

To all my dear, dear friends, 

God says LISTEN to the truth I speak to you. Mark 11:22

And then you will have the truth and the truth will set you free! John 8:32

I was connected with God and the Holy Spirit when I was five years old. Our dear Sunday School Teacher taught us a song called, “Jesus Loves Me’” What a great thing to know. I was His and He was mine. But just in case, I did ask Jesus to come into my life and heart many times Over the years, just because I needed to be sure. I was Baptized when I started going to church with my now husband Bill. He’d already been baptized years ago. Then we once had a Pastor who asked his regulars if he could baptize his faithful ones just to make sure, so we were well covered as far as religion was concerned. You don’t have to do any of that twice. Once is enough. 

When we trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not to our own understanding. God’s truth sets us free. (Not ourtruth, but God’s truth) He is always there for us whether we know what’s going to happen or not.

He stands at our doors and knocks. If anyone hears his voice and will open the door, He will come in. 

One thing I’ve not known and not done in my Christian life was to wait on the Holy Spirit to tell me what to do in any situation. Instead, I’ve rushed off in a panic worrying about what the answer should be. It was a way of generating stress which isn’t really good for us. 

I don’t know why such an obvious thing as quietly listening for Him to take care of me got past me. Sometimes, I still don’t get it. First, I begin to panic, but He is always on my side!  (Thank the Lord) the panic gets pushed away leaving room for big things as well as small ones to come to mind and heart and I quiet down and wait for Him, and he shows me the way.

It is wonderful when He takes something small and magnifies it and I know Holy Spirit lives in me and He cares about the smallest and largest thing and I can live, not in fear, but in delight wondering what the next thing is going to be. Good or bad it’s all in His hands and I am learning that I don’t know it all, but He does.  And I love being guided by them and Him and His love. He can do anything, healings, deliverance, and get this He owns all the cattle in the world and can show us about finances too. I’ve wasted too many years not practicing that kind of prayer, but He’s still with me and I am still His and always, always will be.

Oh How He Loves You and Me



DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
