It isn't always easy to hear or listen to God, especially when God is calling me to some kind of personal conversion needed in my life. Do you sometimes know what God is asking of you, yet play the game of not really focusing on it? I've done that for years and I am still wrestling with some areas of my life that need improvement.
Seeing can be a real problem for me too. I can get frustrated with others who fail to see the big picture of things while sticking to insignificant problems that may come up. I sometimes see only through my perspective of things and this can cause problems too. Seeing and listening are gifts from God. Should they be so difficult to open and use?
I ask today, for the grace to truly try to hear and see God's Will for me in my life. I may not always catch myself, but it is worth the try. The one thing I need to see and hear more clearly is the consistent truth that God loves me, even when I fail to see or listen. God understands. God does not blow me off or get angry. God waits patiently, even over a lifetime, for me to come around.
