Are you listening? I mean truly listening? In today’s fast paced world, it’s a hard thing to do and is something that we need to be conscious about every single day.
I see this pic of Mel Gibson talking to the actor who played Jesus in The Passion and in this photo it clearly shows to me how many of us interact with the Lord! We adamantly expressing our heart and desires and wants and needs. Begging him for forgiveness and love. Begging him to just answer a prayer or make our life stories clear to us.
In this picture I also see a God who is there humbly listening. A God who’s ear is taking in all that we ramble about. A God who is bloodied and bruised from taking on our sins while we look clean and pure. A God who did that for us.
Sometimes it’s hard to see where God is in your life because we spend to much time asking and talking to him about our problems when all we should be doing is listening. He’s speaking – but it’s with a quiet and humble voice. A voice of love. Let us make sure our voices and fervent prayers don’t drown out the words and desires of the one who truly loves us.
I absolutely love this pic. It is such a powerful reminder to me. While God is always there to listen – he is also there waiting for you to shut up and listen to him.
I don’t know about you, but this is a GREAT article to PIN on the days that you need that reminder.
