You ever have those moments when you are having a conversation with someone and you are expressing yourself and then it comes time for the other person to speak and you question if they heard anything you said at all?
It’s frustrating when it happens to you. But what about when we do it to others?I found myself recently trying to wing a conversation. The topic of the conversation was not my favorite subject but even worse I was having phone challenges. You see I was multitasking-talking and driving (with a hands free device) and in some spots I was getting spotty reception. Rather than keep saying what did you say. I was just pretending to hear what was being said.
Nobody likes to talk at someone. We all long to be fully heard.
I recently came across this passage of scripture from Psalms 116:2(NLT)
Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
Can I tell you there has been times it felt as if God was not listening to my whines of oh long oh Lord? There are times even now that I’m tempted to push off certain requests that I have been bringing before him on many occasions. But the Psalmists words encourage me.
We continually have the ear of one who listens.
