The purpose of Monday Manna to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word. Each Thursday, a Bible verse to ponder will be posted, either here or at my dear friend Vonnie's blog, My Back Door. The following Monday, those participating will post their thoughts on the verse at their own blogs and link up at the bottom of the post in the Linky gadget. The main purpose is to chew on the same Scripture and learn from one another.
Here's this week's verse.
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT)Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Mine are below.
I'm told I'm not too bad of a listener either. I'm not so sure, though. I've been thinking about, almost analyzing, my conversations lately. It seems that I'm much more likely to be thinking about my next response to a conversation instead of paying attention to what others are saying to me. And my replies often have more to do with yours truly than what the other has to say.
Sometimes, my relationship with the Lord is similar. I'm too busy asking the Lord for things that I don't hear His voice. My heart is too wrapped up in myself to keep it open to listen. And He wants to talk to me. He wants me to come to Him.
I need to quiet myself so I can hear the Lord speaking to my heart. If I don't, I won't have the opportunity to come to Him with the right attitude.
Thanks for reading. Please link up in the gadget below with your own thoughts and read others' contributions. I'm sure you'll be blessed.
