Listen – #FMF

Five Minute Friday @ Kate Motaung’s

Five-Minute-Friday-4-600x600

Word to write on for five minutes is listen.

GO ::

I listen with both ears most of the time.  I listen with both ears and my heart most of the time.  I listen with only one ear attuned to the speaker some of the time while the other ear is shut off or tuned into a distraction.  And then there are times when I have no ears on, no heart open, and I hear zero.

I am one of those people who needs direct contact and/or no distractions in order to hear what is being said.  I want to listen and hear it all.  I want to be able to grasp the whole thing, gaining understanding, even wisdom.  I cannot have other people talking at the same time or I lose it all.  I need quiet.  I need only one person speaking at a time.

God has asked me to listen and obey.  I want God to speak to me when He calls for He is telling me something I need to know from Him.  He may be speaking to me when I have asked for direction.  The world around me must be quiet.  More importantly, I must be still on the inside.
