Nine Ways God Always Speaks Giveaway

A few weeks ago I was listening to a Christian Talk show on our local Christian radio  station when I heard an interview with Mark Herringshaw talking about his new book "Nine Ways God Always Speaks"  he co-authored with Jennifer Schuchmann. I was very impressed with his interview and as I traveled in the car listening to him it was raining and the sun was shining  and I was looking for God to speak through his rainbow.  At that point I knew this is a book I wanted to read.

The next evening I was on Twitter and I was searching what people were saying about a Burger King commercial I found very inappropriate.  I clicked on a profile of  a person who felt the same way I did.  On her background page was the picture of this book.  My first reaction was to laugh.  I had discovered the Jennifer the co-author of the book.  I knew then God was speaking and he wanted me to read this book.  Jennifer and I chatted for a bit a I felt very connected to her and I knew God had his hand in that.  Jennifer was kind enough to send me the book to read as well as one to giveaway to one of my readers.  I have not finished it all yet but I am really enjoying it hope you will as well.

“Was the dream I had last night a message from God, or was it just the pizza I had for dinner?”
“Was that last e-mail from my boss God’s way of telling me to find a new job?”
“Was that billboard a sign from God, or was it just a sign?”

Perhaps you’ve never heard God speak.
Maybe you have, but you’re afraid to admit it.

Whatever your situation, the truth is, we all long to hear from God. We want his approval, his comfort, and his divine direction.

God is so much bigger and more amazing than we can possibly comprehend. What if he has more than one way of reaching out to us?

What if God is always trying to talk with us, but while we’re expecting a Morgan Freeman voiceover, he’s communicating through other people, circumstances, or seemingly random occurrences?

In Nine Ways God Always Speaks, Mark Herringshaw and Jennifer Schuchmann use compelling stories from the Bible, history, and ordinary people who have seen God work in their lives to show that God not only wants to communicate with us, but he can and does—often in unexpected and surprising ways.

One reader will win their own copy of "Nine Ways God Always Speaks". To enter leave me a comment telling me a way you think God speaks to you.

I find that God speaks to me and ministers to my heart through music. As a worship musician at my church, I find that music can offer divine revelation that touches the very center of a soul in different ways for different people at the same service.

God speaks to me as He shows me things on morning walks or different things about nature.

I'm going to put a comment on twitter. I think God also speaks to me when I go to Bible class with the women at prison. They are amazing and know more about grace and realize what it truly is.

God speaks in many ways, but the one I remember most is when we were sitting around a camp fire at church one night and I audibly heard God tell me "I love you".

Twice the other day I turned on the tv and heard an answer to a question I'd been thinking about


God talks to me in many ways..although I may not listen or catch it- He is talking just like He hears everything and may not answer the way I want- it is all for a reason

I think God talks to me alot but I don't always listen. When I am outside surrounded by nature is when I feel him talk the most. Just messages about appreciating the beauty in life as reflected in a flower or a hummingbird. I always feel more at peace when I am away from people and noise and stress and in the calm quiet of nature.

I call them "nudges". It's like an inaudible voice that gives just the right direction when needed.

I am so fortunate. I hear Him all the time.Not only do I see Him in all things, I let Him guide me in my decisions, in my daily tasks. Even finding your wonderful blog was not pure chance. I know that He hears and sees everything but I also know that He speaks to all of us who believe, and it is up to us to know how to listen, and, more importantly, obey.

God speaks to me thru His Word. I just need to spend time studying it and allowing the Holy Spirit to talk to me.
