Today’s act of kindness is to LISTEN. From this desire to listen must come the ability to be SILENT. You cannot listen to the other person if you talk too. You will find that when someone who is depressed wants to open up, it can be like a tap has just been opened. You can ENLIST your inner strength to help you to be quiet and listen. The temptation is there to try and correct things said that differ from your memory or perspective of them.
At a later time when reflecting on all that you have heard, you can then enlist your wisdom as to what help you need to access. It is an act to LISTEN, your SILENT prayer or meditation can ENLIST resources and strength you didn’t realise you had.
Psalm 143:1 ” Lord hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy, in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.”
