Who do we rest with?
We yearn for rest in this demanding life. We find it with people who listen – those who meet us with humility, not ego.
People who listen fully and gently, focused on understanding us, not judging. Their open ears invite our trust. Their kind empathy offers balm.
In the presence of true listeners, our souls quiet. We exhale. We are heard. We matter.
The humble art of listening gifts us rest. In the sanctuary of being deeply listened to, we find respite. We know we are not alone.
Matthew 11:28-30. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.
