I have decided that I am a rather sensitive, drama loving movie buff with a heart for redemptive films for the most part. I discovered that as Kim and I recently became customers of “complicated television” requiring two controllers and a computer science degree. But I have choices. Kim is without options because she no longer knows how to operate the TV. But there is hope for her. Her wonderful husband is in touch with his sensitive side so we watch our share of dramas, love stories, romantic comedies, and of course…stories of redemption. By the way, if you let this leave Cleveland County I will bear false witness (forgive me Lord) and deny I ever wrote this and blame it on the two “Hallmark Queens” I work with …. Katherine and Nicole. I think Vickie is a DIY TV fan .
Well anyway we were watching our latest movie of human recovery the other night and it was basically a course in Psychology 101….. we all need someone to talk to. Call it what you will, a soul mate, a confidant, an accountability partner, or just a plain old listening ear. We need to share our joys, our hurts, and our hearts with someone and it is “that important.” I believe with all my heart from the most introverted to the wildly extroverted we need to get some things off our chests and you and I could be the needed listener. In Romans, Paul the apostle talks about “rejoicing with those who rejoice and weeping with those who weep,” which in my humble opinion is our command to listen to those we come into contact with on a daily basis. Let me encourage you in these isolated and divisive times we live in to listen. Oh, and you may want to take some time to listen to God as well. In listening to someone you could be, along with God, a part of the redemptive process for someone in need.
God bless you,
