Most people would agree that listening is an important skill; most of us aren’t all that good at it. It’s hard to communicate when all of the communication goes only one way!
I’m not talking about listening to other people, however; I’m talking about communicating with God.
To be entirely accurate, most of us don’t spend much time in prayer talking to God… we’re busy people after all. For those who do take the time to speak with God, do we ever give Him a chance to contribute to the communication?
You know, there is that “still small voice” people sometimes talk about; can you ever hear it?
Boy, it sure is tough to hear if we’re always doing the talking! Maybe there are times when we are with God that we should just be still for a while and see what happens… Can we spare the time?
