I’m not going to lie, it usually feels pretty good to provide an answer that is well thought out, articulate, and accompanied with wisdom. As a pastor, counseling others is a normal occurrence in my life. I wish I could say everything I say is profound and articulate but I know that’s not true. But when you take the time to listen and process what has just been said and allow some thought to enter into the equation, there are often times when all the right words just spill out. Sure, it gives me joy to know that God can use a donkey like me, but even more joyous is how those right words at the right time are able to bless someone in desperate need for them.
Please Lord, allow us to listen, think, and then speak, relying on you to give us those perfect words at the perfect time.
