Sometimes we listen, but don't always hear. I was reminded about this during a conversation today with some friends. One friend was discussing directions from a doctor and the number of times the doctor repeated the directions and asked for questions. As we move through life, there are times we need to slow down, stop, and truly listen to hear!
God is always speaking to us, but we don't always hear Him. In the hustle and bustle of our routines and daily lives, we may become distracted. When we feel that we can't hear God, we don't need to wait on God to get our attention. We need to stop, listen, and truly pay attention to God. Once we hear God, we need to hold onto His directions, being sure we understand them and keep them in our hearts. We also need to act on our directions so others can see how God fills our hearts!
Stop. Hear God, hold onto His directions in your heart, and follow them!
Thank You for being active in my life and for giving me direction. Please help me to always pay attention and to act on Your guidance. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
