"If you have ears, listen!" Matt 13:9 (TLB)

With the gift of listening comes the gift of healing. - Catherine de Hueck

Do you know a good listener? They are the best friends we can have. They are healers, problem solvers, and ones who inspire. And often it is without a spoken word.

When you have a good listener to whom you can turn in need, do so. When we have to form the words and the sentences to tell someone what is consuming us, it helps us to work out our own solutions. There is something about another person listening that helps us to see more clearly what is behind and what lies ahead.

God is a good listener. That's why prayer is so important and so effective. When there is no one else there is our Heavenly Father who listens and loves and lets us pour out our hearts. By speaking to Him, we can be guided to the calm waters of life again even amidst the storm.
