What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate

What happens when we don't communicate?  So many times we talk, but we don't speak.  And sometimes we hear, but we don't listen.  We may as well be talking to a wall (or listening to one).


It's like this with how we talk to God too.  We need to make our desires clear if we want Him to hear us.  Even though He knows our every need (long before we do), it keeps us humble to admit that we are lost or that we are sorry for sinning.  We need to listen to what HE is telling us and obey immediately.  Even if it is something we really don't want to do.  After all, He knows better. 

When we don't communicate we lose the message and rely on our own resources to get us through.  Mostly that is going to fail us.  Study the word, dear Reader, so that you know His voice.  Study so that you understand His words.

This is just a little humor (please don't be offended, I am of Irish and Austrian descent), but it shows what happens when our communication skills are less than ideal.

  2. Enjoyed your video and I'm trying to "listen more" and "talk less" when I'm talking to God--not always easy! Good post!

  4. The video really made me laugh out loud. Thanks!!! I love the quiet of the morning when my mind is open and still. Though not in voice, but through a sense, I know I have often heard God communicating with me--such a feeling of love and peace. Thanks for sharing your messages, Deirdre.

  5. Deirdre, I can't find your video but I read your last post and agree with what you say--it's not always easy to communicate with our Lord and Savior when so much is going on in our lives--exactly when we need to bond with Him the most!

    Love, Micki
