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.

24/7

“Come and listen, all you who fear God,
    and I will tell you what he did for me.
For I cried out to him for help,
    praising him as I spoke.
If I had not confessed the sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened.
But God did listen!
    He paid attention to my prayer.
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer
    or withdraw his unfailing love from me.”

– Psalm 66:16-20

Why wait for 11:11 when God listens 24/7? Pray to Him, he will always listen.

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.”
