Thought of the Week

Listen to listen, not to respond. I recently wrote this on my Instagram and originally I was referring to the interaction between humans. We are so quick to respond and have our say. As the weeks went on I was really challenged about how I approach my prayer life and quiet time with God. Am I listening to hear from Him or am I listening to respond? It’s very easy to get caught up in the routine of prayer life, the “thanks for this, I want that and I love you”.

I challenged myself this week to simply listen and not actually ask anything of God. Psalm 46:10 in The Passion Translation puts it like this “Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving, and you will see that I am God”. I love this! Surrender you anxiety, stop striving and listen to listen!!
