Too Long

Friday, June 26, 2015

How long has it been?

How long has it been since I let them speak?

How long has it been since I let the deepest worries of their souls flow out from them? How long?





How long has it been since I listened?



Their words were locked inside their hearts because I refused to hear them.

I spoke freely while they were silent - they listened, yet I couldn't do the same.

How long has it been? Too long.


Lord, give me the strength to have open ears, an open heart, and a discerning mind.

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry, because human anger does no produce the righteousness that God desires.
James 1:19

As the old proverb goes, comments are good for the soul. Or something like that. So, comment away! Throw kindness out like confetti!
