Loud Silence

Most of the time, when people confide and open themselves to us, we get so easily excited to immediately repair them by our own mindless lambasting words of pseudo wisdom…leaving them emotionally maimed.

We fail to realize that all they actually need is genuine love and care expressed in silence. Thus, we ought to listen. 

‎”…when we are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then we are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.”

I find genuine wisdom with what the Bible says in James 1:19, “Understand this…Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak…”

Speak in loud silence by listening more. If you want to put words into it, make sure that your words are better than your silence.

Worth Pondering…

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.

Isaiah 40:26

…What is mankind that you are mindful of them,
a son of man that you care for him?

Hebrews 2:6; Psalm 8:4

Through It All

Image

You are forever in my life
You see me through the seasons
Cover me with Your hand
And lead me in Your righteousness

And I look to You
And I wait on You

I’ll sing to You Lord
A hymn of love
For Your faithfulness to me
I’m carried in everlasting arms
You’ll never let me go
Through it all

Friend, if you’re struggling right now, if you’re fed up with everything, or if you feel so lonely as if the whole world has walked out on you, know this—God’s hand will always be on your shoulder no matter what.

What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

—Psalm 8:4 (ESV)

He WILL ALWAYS love you. He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. Even before you were born, He already had His great plans laid out for you.

If there is a song of love in your heart right now, sing it to Him. Let Him know that you love Him too.

Know this, before the whole world even knew you and even after the whole world is through with you, He will definitely see you…through it all.

God Knows

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
      You have recorded each one in your book.” —Psalm 56:8 NLT 

People live in a world of heartache, pain, suffering, and longing. We live a life full of complaints and frustrations. We think that nobody understands us and that nobody can help us but ourselves.

That is when we are WRONG.

God understands all our pains and  frustrations. He knows every reason behind our heartaches and every solution to our problems.

 He MADE us. He KNOWS us deeply.

 “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.” 

                                                                                                                                 —1 Peter 5:7, NLT

Place your problems in God’s hands. He will NEVER let you down.

Love Matters

We love people not because we are comfortable about loving them.

We love people because we might be the only ones who will ever care.

There are four Gospels from which people can know about the love of God in Christ.

Matthew.

Mark.

Luke.

John.

And you.

Listen to Learn, Be There to Care

When we truly tune in to what others are trying to communicate to us,  we can unlock another door to deeper learning.

“God accomplishes incredible things through people who are able to respectfully and lovingly listen. He offers His quiet, gentle direction to those who wait peacefully upon Him, and He guides us to minister to one another through patiently listening to and carrying each other’s burdens.”
