Do you replay conversations in your head as much as I do?
I am usually regretting all the things I didn’t say. Sometimes though, there are just conversations that make me smile or laugh because the memory is so good. Those times when someone truly listened to me, when me felt heard. Or even more so, those times when I read something or hear a message and I know it was meant just for me.
That feeling gives me a .0000001% perspective on what it must have felt like for the disciples when they realized they had spent hours traveling down a road with Jesus after his resurrection.
They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”
~ Luke 24:32
How many times do I miss the importance of the moments in front of me because I am so worried about what is coming next? This week my goal is to pay attention.
