Listening to a certain show on television, or a sporting event can make us tune out part or all of another's attempts at conversation. This happens in life quite often, including when our creator is trying to speak to us in our daily lives.
Often times, we pray for something. We pray for healing, or we pray for guidance, or the wise choice in matters that affect our personal or professional lives.
Are we really listening? Are we opening our hearts to what God is trying say through us? Sometimes the message may not be sinking in. Remember to listen to our beloved Savior, he may just be calling you to greater things.
