Listen to Your Heart

"When you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent."1

Melody Beattie in her book, The Language of Letting Go, emphasizes the importance of contemplating what is on your mind first thing when you wake up in the morning? What is it in that half-asleep, half-awake place? Are you troubled about something? Is there some responsibility you have neglected and it is bothering you? Is it a goal you've wanted to start but have kept putting it off? Is it an unhealthy relationship you are in and you know you need to get out of? Is it a destructive habit or sin that you feel convicted about?

Very often what is on your mind at this time is coming from your inner self, your unconscious mind. It is revealing an issue you need to deal with. Listen to that "inner voice" and do what you know you need to do about it that is troubling you or motivating you. Don't put it off. Take care of it each day.

It can help to have a pad and pen at your bedside and the first thing each morning write down what is on your mind as you awaken. This is often a matter one needs to pray about and then act on.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, as Your Word suggests, help me to learn to listen carefully to what my heart is saying and what You might be saying to my heart, and give me the wisdom and courage to act accordingly. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Psalm 4:4 (NIV).
