If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Are You Too Busy To Listen

"You were too busy creating those
beautiful words in your mind
to PRAISE ME that you forgot to LISTEN...
It is only in the deepest silence
that you can find the answer."


Sometimes our burden weighs us down and that's when we remember to pray. We utter words of praises in the hope that He will look upon us with favor. And He always does... even without fancy words.

But why do we still feel heavy despite the fact that we have already knelt down in front of Him, offered our sorrow and uttered our praises? Why do we hunger for an answer that doesn't seem to come no matter how hard we pray? Why doesn't anything make sense at all?

Have you thought for one moment that MAYBE... just maybe... you didn't give Him a chance at all to talk to you? Perhaps your mind was racing to catch every word of praise that you can muster or of weariness just to let Him understand how heavily
your present situation is affecting you.

You don't go to a friend to give her a compliment and just turn your back after saying your piece. You don't go to a counselor, tell him all your problems and leave his office without waiting for an advice. Of course, you wait for a reply.

The same thing goes with prayer. As in any communication, God also wants to respond to you. But how can He do this when you were probably too busy to listen to what He has to say to you? Can you imagine, you let Him wait for you to finish what you wanted to tell Him and just when He is about to give His response, you conclude your prayer and stand up to leave.

Remember this:

"It is only in the deepest silence that you can find the answer."

Empty your mind and START LISTENING!

Blessings to all,

Lovely Post. I would add that it is the "void" where all questions live... we just need to be quiet enough to know/hear the answers.

Hello, Bing! Beautiful post. I still need to learn how to do that, to really listen.

Have a great day!

FLO, having a personal relationship with Him means letting Him talk to you too. He is reaching out to all of us. He wants us to listen. Let's not do all the talking.

TRIPTI, it's so nice to see you again here. I hope you are doing fine. Thanks for dropping by.

God bless!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
