Listening to Jesus
Listening to Jesus is not hard, but I need to tune myself out first. It is amazing how often I find myself talking to myself in my head. Perhaps others do this, too, but I need to be quiet to really listen to Jesus who is trying to talk to me. Actually, when I become quiet, I hear God speaking to me in so many ways and He does not even need words. Remember, silence is God's first language.
I used to think I needed to close my eyes and really enter into quiet prayer in order to listen to Jesus. Now, I find He keeps talking to me in everything around me. It is a grace and I may have mentioned it recently in a blog as I think I have just become more in tune with how God listens to my heart and lets me listen to his heart.
It is something like a married couple who have been together for so many years that they now are able to communicate without words.
