learning to listen…

A large part of spiritual growth…
involves learning to listen…
to His Word…
to His Spirit…
to His promptings…

There’s been many times in the past…
I’ve heard a thought…
considered it…
dismissed it…
and later thought…
Ahhh… that was Him…

This morning I woke with a thought…
one I thought yesterday…
but mostly resolved to dismiss…

When it woke me up…
I decided to listen…
He provided the time…
energy…
motivation…
to get it done…

I’m pretty sure it was Him…
His help in ordering my week…
but because I listened…
I may not know…
or recognize…
if it was Him…

When we dismiss His thoughts…
there is almost always regret…
a moment when you go…
I really should’ve listened…

But when we obey…
we don’t always see the confirmation…
of all going well…
everything working out…
because there is no problem…
to get out attention…

Desiring to be more attentive to His voice…
avoid moments of regret…
be more active in His Kingdom…
so today…
I chose to listen…

You guide me with your counsel…
Psalm 73:24 ESV
