If you know me, you know I talk a lot. Sometimes I even run several questions together much to the confusion of whoever is listening. My Dad used to tell me, “You never learn anything when your mouth is going.” I find that to be absolutely true. You can’t talk and listen at the same time. I talk to God much the way I talk to friends and even with the Almighty, I use run on sentences! But lately, I’ve been trying to listen more to God. I’ve made it a habit to stop into our church several times a week and sit before the tabernacle and listen. It is always a quiet, peaceful and even a relaxing time to be with the Creator. I never hear run on sentences from him, but he does speak to me in my heart. Since my mouth is not operating, I sometimes can hear him.
