Conversation

10 Nov

When you think of all the people you like to talk to, I wonder who is high on your list? Siblings, friends, children, other family members may top your list, but what about God?

Sometimes it is hard to imagine conversation with God. We are so used to face to face communication with loved ones or even digital communication with dear ones and those methods don’t seem to measure up when we think about conversing with God.

I do believe, though, God is quite the good listener. I picture God in this crazy busy world with ears and eyes wide open for when we dare speak to him; attentive, devoted and ready is the Lord.

But some may find it funny to chat with God because it feels like a one way conversation.

Is it really?

Failings I have in my conversations with God are my willingness to talk and talk and my forgetfulness about listening.

There is a still small voice uttering value into my life and I dare say I miss out—not paying attention.

 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. –Zechariah 4:6

That verse suggests that God’s conversations with us might not be out of a dramatic storm, nor will they come from a powerful wind or a crashing sea, but instead in a soft tender message possibly missed by those of us still talking.

In a good human conversation there is give and take, shared ideas, turn taking to keep things even.

I shall consider this true with God.

    Hi Denise, I am really enjoying this blog. Is this your personal e-mail, or just for the blog? I would like to ask you a question just for you, so please let me know how to do that.

    I have been retired for a month now, and am slowly adjusting. I’d love to catch up when you have a minute. My cell is 716-930-3976 if that’s easier. Looking forward to connecting.
