Longing to be Heard

00:00

Description

Do you know someone who's going through a tough situation? Offer a listening ear, and make sure your friend feels heard.

Last week a friend called and asked me to please come to her house right away.

I had several things on my to-do list that day, but I chose to stop and take time to go help my friend.

On my way there, I felt a little nervous because I had no idea what she was struggling with. I prayed and asked God for wisdom with my words, actions and reactions.

When I finally arrived, we sat together and talked. Well, she talked and I listened. She talked about her recent issues and how she was coping. She talked about her feelings and how they were affecting the situation she was in. And she talked about the resolution to her problem.

On my way home, I couldn’t help but smile. All that my friend needed was a listening ear. She didn’t need my advice or a ready solution to her problem. She was simply longing to be heard.
