The Listening Heart: Hearing God in Prayer: Devotions for Every Day of the Year
More. Life is full to overflowing, but we crave an illusive more. Via social networking, airwaves, and TV, our culture tells us to strive for more stuff, more activities, more adventure--you name it. Yet we are often left feeling unfulfilled and wanting. Empty, even. With so many demands for our attention, it is difficult to quiet our minds long enough to hear the still, small voice of our loving Father, and to listen to the One who desires to bring us so much more than the noise of everyday life.
Judy Gordon Morrow discovered the more when her world was turned upside down and she knelt before God to seek Him and ask for His help. More than a decade ago, in tear-stained notebooks, she began to pen God's responses to her desperate prayers. Now, in The Listening Heart, Judy invites you to spend a year hearing from the God Who Speaks--the God who wants to speak to you. Each daily devotion echoes the Father's love and care for you, offering hope, comfort, encouragement, and more--a rich closeness with God that will satisfy the longings of your heart.
This haunting devotional is strangely affecting, an approach that perhaps wouldn't be advised and might even be discouraged, yet somehow works in a wholly refreshing and unexpected way. It'll grow on you if you let it, and so you should.- Jerry B. Jenkins, "New York Times" bestselling novelist, biographer, and Owner, Christian Writers Guild This book is a treasure. As I read each daily entry I found my heart softening and my spirit calling out to know Christ more intimately. Deep calls to deep on the pages of this devotional gem. Be prepared to respond at the soul level and experience a transformation.- Robin Jones Gunn, Bestselling novelist and author of "Victim of Grace" In "The Listening Heart", Judy Gordon Morrow invites readers to eavesdrop--in a sacred way--on her most intimate conversations with God. What sets this book apart is the raw, spontaneous quality of the entries. I especially recommend this book to readers who struggle to hear God's voice in a tangible way. Borrowing Judy's ears for a stretch is sure to bring readers closer to God's heart.- Heather Kopp, Blogger at HeatherKopp.com and author of "Sober Mercies" "A Memoir""The Listening Heart". Oh how we need it. Oh how we want it. But cultivating a heart tuned to God's voice isn't easy in the busy, noisy world we live in. With tender beauty and life-changing insights, Judy Morrow takes us beyond religious ritual to the heart of relationship--helping us nurture an intimate friendship with the One who knows us best yet loves us most.- Joanna Weaver, Bestselling author of "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
