Five Minute Friday @ Kate Motaung’s
Word to write on for five minutes is listen.
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.
