"Listen to Prepare. Prepare to Listen"
Listen means to hear something with thoughtful attention: give consideration.
Listening is key to healthy relationships and effective communication. Being understood takes listening. Being understanding takes listening. This year our Don't Lose Yourself family is committed to listening, and that commitment starts with prayer.
As we go through the hustle and bustle of the day, it is easy for our lives to get busy, loud, and overwhelming. We are encouraging you all to participate in #TheDLY1515Challenge and spend the first 15min of your day and the last 15min of your day with God. Listen to His voice, learn His heart, grow in His love, and receive His instruction.
When we start and end our day with God we get wisdom to navigate our day, rest to have peace throughout our day, and power to tackle what lies ahead.
It's not too late to listen and make room for God to speak to and through you. Let's start by giving him the first and last parts of our day and by seeking His face in steadfast prayer!
Our Scripture for This Year
Jesus Visits Martha and Mary
“38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying. 40 But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.’ 41 But the Lord answered her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; 42 there is need of only one thing.[a] Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.’”
