May 11, Today’s thought — God Listens

For he hath not despised
nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath he hid his face from him;
but when he cried unto him,
he heard.
Psalm 22:24

You can talk to God because God listens.
Your voice matters in heaven.
He takes you very seriously.
When you enter into his presence, he turns to you to hear your voice.
No need to fear that you will be ignored.
Even if you stammer or stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it impresses God, and he listens.
He listens to the painful plea of the elderly in the rest home.
He listens to the gruff confession of the death-row inmate.
When the alcoholic begs for mercy, when the spouse seeks guidance, when the businessman steps off the street into the chapel.
He listens.
Max Lucado, The Great House of God.

Trust in God for your day . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
