Listening to the Hawk


While on my morning walk I was amazed to see a hawk swoop down and sit on a fence post near me. He sat for a moment then called out three times and waited. Then his mate who was hidden in the trees on the opposite side of the field cried back the same. I’m not sure what their conversation was about but it reminded me of the verse from Psalms.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
Psalm 42:7 NIV

For us it is God who is on the other side and He is calls out to us and then waits. If we sit quietly we will hear Him and His voice will awaken something deep within. Then the answer will grow in our own hearts until we call back to Him.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
