I Can Talk, But Will I Listen?

I have no problem talking.
I can talk to my husband.
I can talk to my kids.
I can talk to my friends.
And I can talk to my Lord.

But, it dawned on me recently,
As it does every so often,
That I need to listen, especially to the Lord.
I cast my cares upon Him.
I bring my requests to His thrown.
I share my deepest hurts and longings.
And then, often times,
I put away my Bible and enter into my busy day.

I didn't wait for His reply.
I didn't sit long enough to see if He had something for me.
A conversation goes two ways.
I am being reminded to not only talk to my God
But to also wait and listen to Him.

May I go through this day eager to hear from Jesus.
I'm sure He has something special for me.
Will I stop talking and listen?
I'm praying that I will.

I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1
Be still, and know that I am God... Psalm 46:10
I need to be patient. I need to be still.

Because of Jesus,

Linking up today here:
