Listening prayer…

051pk

Listening

I need to make it a habit

Not rushing through my Bible reading

my prayer list

then rushing on to my next thing to get done

Listening

Quieting my heart and mind

God reveals His secrets to His friends

Jesus tells us whatever the Father tells Him

How much have I missed

by rushing out of His Presence

I need to make it a habit

To be still

To be quiet

To listen

007pk

Still following,

Elizabeth

  6. this listening, it can be scary for me. I'm afraid I will be stood up, afraid of what I hear, what I will assess of myself while I wait... so needed, no?
