Do you ever just sit and talk with God?
I guess you could call it prayer. But that’s not really the vibe I’m picturing here.
This is more like meeting a friend for coffee, updating them on life, pinging them for advice on a few issues, losing your train of thought in some deep emotion, and staring up in the corner for a few minutes so you can catch your breath and not lose it in front of strangers.
So… real conversation.
But then, like any good friend, not dominating the get-together by listening too.
What does listening to God sound like? I think a lot of us would say… silence. A void. Not much. And that’s sad. I think God has a lot to say and speak into.
So invite him to coffee this week. Just hang out. Be real.
Yes, tell him about your life.
Sure, ask him for his thoughts.
Of course, don’t hide the deep emotions.
But then, allow a response.
I know it’s not any of my business, but I’m itching to hear what He tells you! If you feel “shary,” comment and let me know. I’ll return the favor and tell you what he’s been saying to me this past week.
