To Listen Better

I am so talkative, Lord.
In the hustle and bustle of my mind,
My tongue has become a runaway.
I have forgotten that I have ears as well
To listen to my companion
Who has just about every right to be heard.
I have become so excellent at it –
Hugging the limelight, looking good,
Getting my point across, sounding good.
Shut me up, Lord. Remind me
That You are also trying to reach me
Through my companion’s thoughts and conversations
Teach me to stay still to hear Your truth,
Know Your goodness, feel Your love
Through the wisdom of my companion.

Bible Inspiration: Sirach 25:9
Happy is he who finds a friend and he who speaks to attentive ears.
