Five Minute Friday: Listen
There is an amazing group of women who I’ve gotten to know over the last year. We all come together on Thursdays night for the #fmfparty on Twitter. We chat, share chocolate and coffee, talk about our day, our dreams and challenges. And then we come together to write, here, all sharing words on a single prompt that connects us together in spirit. And I come to read, their words touching me deeply, moving my heart and stirring my soul. I am awakened and challenged, offered hope and joy, all the while longing to know this one more.
As I read your words, do I listen to your heart?
As I read your words, do I hear the depth of your pain and the rush of your joy?
As I read your words, do I walk away knowing you more than I did the day before?
As I read your words, I listen and I ask the Holy Spirit, What is in the heart of this one who comes to share so bravely. And as I receive your words, I allow them to sink deep into my soul. I want to know, What moves your heart?
Friends, I am here for you. I am leaning in closer. I may not be able to listen with my ears, but I will listen to you with my heart.
