talking

I like to spend time in the mornings
being quiet with God.
Except I am not very quiet.
I spill it all out.
I read and I talk.
I talk all day.
He never gets tired of me.
He listens to every word.
We get in the habit of giving people cliche's.
How are you?
I am fine, thanks.
But God really wants the scoop.
What is really on your mind matters.
He knows anyway.
If I talk it out with God
I always find the answer I am needing.
Maybe not immediately,
but He reveals to me what I need.
He lays it on my heart.
That's what I mean when I say God told me.
No, he doesn't rumble down 
audible words from heaven.
But there is no denying what he told me.
It is just on my heart and I know it isn't from me.
It is hard to explain,
but the more time in his word you spend
the more and more it happens.
He is cool like that.
God is all- powerful.
He is faithful and just.
Put your faith in him and
he will quiet your heart.
Skip the rote prayers...
pour it all out baby.
He loves to hear from us.
He forgives us,
so we can be direct and honest.
We can trust him.
He delivers and protects us.
He sustains us.
 He is a great listener.
In fact, he is the best.
So friend, get your gab on.
