John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.
I am learning to trust the wisdom of my body, which I have learned is often the vessel through which God and my ancestors speak through and to me. I grew up hearing people tell me that I shouldn’t expect God’s voice to come out of a cloud and tell me what to do. No one ever told me, though, that I could learn to hear God’s voice speaking through my own heart.
