How to Listen

"Usually people already know the answers to their dilemmas. Talking it out helps people realize that–if only the listener focuses on helping them think things through"– author Belinda Burston

Now Belinda keeps these letters in her line of sight at the office. W-A-I-T. They stand for ‘Why am I talking’!

This lends a new perspective on Bible verses like this one. The letters in bold are mine.

The Lord is good to those who wait (WHY AM I TALKING!) hopefully and expectantly for Him, to those who seek Him [inquire of and for Him and require Him by right of necessity and on the authority of God’s word]. (Lamentations 3:25, AMP)

Prayer- Lord, today we ask ourselves W.A.I.T. , and listen as you give us direction for our lives. Amen.
