31 Days: The Why of Listening

Fronds Unfurling

This is Day 2 of 31 Days to Listen, and already I need to remind myself of why I’m doing this. Already I am guilty of bringing my ‘to do’ list to God.

I’m listening Lord. I have a post to write, please tell me what to say.

How did I let that happen? How did I reduce this precious gift, this invitation into his heart, to “please fill my order and I’ll be on my way”? What makes me think that I would truly be satisfied with what he gives from his hand, when I’m being offered what he holds in his heart?

Forgive me Lord, and draw me back to you. It’s you I seek, your face. Whatever that looks like in my life, I want you, your presence. I want that peace, that knowing in the stillness of my heart. I belong to you.

Whatever else I do in my life needs to flow from knowing you, walking with you.

That’s why I want to listen.
