Five Minute Friday- Listen


This week the word prompt  is listen.

I think a lot of us like to talk and talk and talk and we do not let him speak. We can go on and on then when we feel like it we take off without even letting him say a word. We just talk about our problems, our day and we don't let him talk. Everyone wants a chance to talk especially him. He  wants a turn to talk to you, He has great advice with any situation that you bring up.

Sounds strange?

Well we all do it. We all cut off God from speaking. God LONGS to talk to us once we voice our selves in prayer. We hope that God is listening, but we don't listen after. I have often amazed kids that I teach by telling them that God will talk with them, if they carefully listen. We are all Good and talking during prayer but what about listening? It is a conversation after all. One Person talks then the other responds.

God is wanting to talk to us daily, every time we call on his name, he is awaiting for us to stop and listen. A True prayer is when we raise our selves to God in Soul, Body, Mind and Spirit. When we are truly saying what on our heart-what we really want and need.

So now one question remains:

Do you listen to God???



  1. Thank you for this one. It reminds me of the scripture in Kings about God not being in the fire or the whirlwind, but in the still small voice. I am guessing that He is as hard to hear as we want Him to be.

  2. Visiting from Five Minute Friday....great reminder that prayer is a conversation. Too oven it's one sided, selfish and all about the "me". I receive this reminder to listen. Thank you.
