How alive is your faith?

Did you ever hear the words:
" shall be done to you in accord with your faith..."?

Well, since I first heard these words...
I've gone back to reading them again and again.
They are words from the Bible (Matthew 9:29)
(in case you were wondering...)

When I read them in my present situation...
they inspire me to trust in God - more than ever!
God's love and power are!!!

In order that God's love and boundless power work for me,
I must have a living faith, and trust in God
like a child.

This kind of faith goes beyond
the understanding of the 'adult' human mind.
This kind of faith requires a total surrendering of the will, to the Father.
So, hand-in-hand we "Daddy" and me.
God always wants what is best for me -
for I am His child, His creation, His image...

The more I trust in my Father,
the more He will do for me.
Am I ready to live my faith more fully?

How to Listen

Did you know that 70% of our waking day is spent in communication?
Only 9% is given to writing, 16% to reading, and - surprisingly- only 30% to speaking.

So...on what do we spend most of our time? Listening!
We spend 45% of our waking hours listening,
and we are so poor at it.
We have never been trained 'how' to listen.

Listening means really paying full attention to the person attempting to communicate with you...
Listening means to be present to the fullest...and not daydreaming...while the other person speaks.

Not with words alone do we speak...
we speak with our tone of voice, pitch...rate...volume...
Our body speaks too, our eyes, face, arms, hands, breathing...

What we don't say...can be as important as what we do say.
Listen with the heart. Listen intently...
and you'll grow better at it...
