Hello friends (smile) I am still trying to get things balanced. (shock face) I promise to post when I can. (smile)
I believe the ability to listen is an acquired skill developed as we mature and grow spiritually.
Having moments of silence brings peace and tranquility to the mind. Brings calmness when things get hectic. Is a choice when buttons are pushed.
These days, someone has an opinion whether its wanted or not. (shock face) Being able to discern wisdom versus rhetoric is a blessings from above. When we’re struggling, and God sends someone to listen, I mean, really listen, with the intent of letting us get things out is truly a blessing. (smile) Praise The Lord!
Sometimes, the stuff we keep inside starts out as a little thought and depending on how much we think on it; it grows to a mountain and becomes overwhelming. Talking and getting it out allows God to heal us in that area then we can let it go!
Listening also strengthens communication. Sometimes, I find we learn more by just listening. Sometimes, people just need to talk. Listening is free. Listening requires time.
Many times, I just talk to The Lord. I tell Him everything I am feeling. I tell Him about my frustrations. There are no secrets between us. I thank Him for listening. (smile) Talking to The Lord is liberating because He already knows what I’m thinking and to be open and honest with Him just strengthens the personal relationship between us. (smile)
My courage comes from within. I’m transparent and allow God to validate my sincerity. (smile)
Next time you are challenged with something and no one is around, talk to God. (smile) You just might experience a powerful connection you never felt before. (smile)
Be blessed and sleep well tonight or enjoy your day! (smile) Comments are welcomed.
