Are you a good listener? How good? Even better, are you an engaged listener?
People that know me would laugh at this, but I consider myself a shy person.
Maybe even an introvert. At least, until I get to know you, I tend to be reserved.
However, I love to observe people and then, if possible, listen to people and their conversations.
Many people love to talk to hear the sound of their voice but the act of listening is a lost art.
When a person listens intently, they are paying attention to the words being spoken.
They have an interest in the individual and what they have to say. They may even care for the person speaking.
One quote that continues empowering me for decades is from a training I attended by the late great Zig Ziglar. He said, "The best communicators are GREAT LISTENERS."
Especially as an author, I listen to my readers and my fans so I can continue to encourage their hearts-inspiring them to think deeply about what I've written.
I continuously seek to hear from God, wanting His direction in what to write about daily.
Do you want to take your relationship with God to the highest levels? Practice listening for His still small voice. It's a life-changer!!!

I thought she was teasing me, but she dialed 9-1-1 right away when she realized something was terribly wrong; she probably helped saved my life.
