Listening: Cumbered much?

I think about all the stuff I’ve packed and hauled down the stairs and out to the car. Schwew.

But in just five hours I’ll haul it all into my sister’s house and clear up the stairs to the guestroom. Then it won’t be long till I pack it all up again, lug it down to the car and bring it all back home. *Sigh* How much of it do I really need any way?

Listening: God Listens. God Loves.

He hears his children and answers them. That’s hard to grasp, that our cries are heard. Our pleading. Our whispered prayers. Even though He knows our thoughts, God loves to hear us call on Him.

I asked God to forgive my sins and received His gift of everlasting life. It delighted Him to hear me calling for Him to save me. He had been calling me all my life.

I was hit by a car when I went for a run. I could have been killed if things would have played out a bit differently.

Listening: When You’re Not Brave

Ever feel like you have to keep learning the same lessons over and over? God keeps loving and teaching us. He just asks that we listen.
