What’s the latest God gossip? That’s one question you never hear voiced around the water cooler at work! Yet, God keeps a journal of all the things we talk about concerning him.
One of the heavenly scribes jots our name and our God gossip down in God’s Book of Remembrance. “Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name” (Malachi 3:16 NIV).
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I wince when I think about that journal:
- Is there much written next to my name?
- What did I say?
- Did it sound like I even knew what I was talking about?
- Dang, if I knew he was taking notes, I would have said more!
What’s your God gossip today? What has God been up to that you have heard about, and how much of that information have you passed on to others?
In Him together, Susan Gaddis

I have been on what I call a “God Watch” lately as I pay attention to the amazing ways He is taking care of me (of course, He is doing that on so many levels that I am not even able to comprehend!). But it has been very exciting to me as I pay attention to His care for me. It has been an overflow of that amazed place that makes it so easy to “make Him famous” in my life. “I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory, to tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.”
Love that verse: Psalm 71. Haven’t read that in a while, but seeing it here was like a warm, restful blanket over my soul. I love that we can’t even fully recount His good deeds because they are too many! Good word…
…..I’m sure I’ll have quite a selection in my journal, Susan….a bit of everything!!!!!
Hopefully, over the years, my conversations have become more acceptable to His ears…..peppered with gratefulness and boasting in the things He has done for me, and the way He has lead me….
He really is my main topic of conversation these days, and I am truly blessed to have others in my life who feel the same way….what a deal!!!!!
Sometimes I think we forget how little we discuss the ways of God in our everyday lives. Thank you each for sharing what God is doing to nudge you towards God gossip. Writing the post made me reconsider my participation in such worthy gossip.
