Prayer: Have you ever been anxious to hear from God? Have you prayed and prayed and there has not been an answer? Perhaps the solution is in taking time to hear from God. Could it be that you are so busy asking that you are not taking time to listen? It may be better to listen to what God has to tell you, rather than telling God what you want to hear! Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God." Take the opportunity to sit and listen to God. Quietly. Without interrupting. Be willing to wait until He speaks to your heart. Listen for His words. Focus on what He is telling you. Be willing to be like Samuel who said, "Speak, for your servant hears." Psalm 25:4 says, Show me Your ways, O Lord, Teach me Your paths, Lead me in Your truth and teach me. Perhaps this is a new concept for you: *Be still *Listen *Write down what you hear *Obey *Watch to see what God does *Give God the glory and praise When you spend time with your Father every day, listening, there may be big changes. Your walk with God may take you in a new direction. Turn your challenges into blessings. Trust God. Joyfully, Joyce
