Are you listening?



Thursday nights are sacred in my home.

It's TGIT!


The Thursday night television line up is so good. It starts at 8p and goes through 11p, most weeks.

So what does that mean for the children?

It means don't talk to me unless it's on commercial. It means ask all of your questions before 8p. It means that Thursday is the one night I claim for myself.

Even though the kids know this, there is always someone who forgets the rules...or maybe they just do not care about the rules 🤔

In either event, there is always a question after 8p.

....and one of my daughter's asks her question while the show is NOT on commercial.

That means that I completely miss her question.

I miss it because I am otherwise distracted by the television show.

You know this doesn't just happen during the Thursday night lineup.

Often times God tries to talk to us but we don't hear Him.

We fail to hear Him because we allow distractions to overshadow His voice.

We fail to hear Him because we take time to listen to everything except Him.

We fail to hear Him because we we are in position to hear Him when He speaks.

Reshape your perspective from God's not speaking, to perhaps I'm not always listening.

What can you do to position yourself to hear from God?

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....

The person who constantly ask you about your goals.
