Are You a Follower?

This passage was in my devotional this morning,
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."
John 10 : 27

  It made me think about being a parent.  Of course, that is what my life is wrapped around right now.  How often have I said to the Things, "did you hear me?", "can you hear my voice?", "what did I just say to you?".  The answer is too many times to count.  I then become frustrated, agitated and begin to ponder the thought of having their hearing checked.  Again.  Only I know it would be diagnosed as selective hearing, or listening, in their case. 
And then it hit me like a ton of bricks.  How often does the Father think that of me?  Can she hear me?  Doesn't she see where I am leading?  Does she not know I have her best in My plans?  I certainly have turned a deaf ear to the voice of the Father.  On more than one occasion.  This passage in John brings me back to the reality that I need to listen.  To rest in His word, and wait to hear Him.  No matter how many times I have not heard today is the day to hear.

    yeah, it sometimes takes a role reversal to see what we need to focus on!
