Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayers for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have a breath!
I love these words, "Because he bends down to listen," amazing!! I love picturing God bending down to listen to my words. But you know what? God can't hear us if we are not talking to Him. What I have learned from David is that He talked to God about everything, every feeling he had. And when he was thinking in a way that he shouldn't, after talking to God his thoughts would become clear and right again.
I so have to get better at this...talking to God instead of people when I am frustrated about a situation in my life. It isn't that God can't hear me when I am talking to others... the problem is that I can't hear God when I am talking to people instead of Him.
