Gazebo Reflections from Dr. Wolfelt

By LibbyNo Comments

As I was pondGazeboering the importance of “companioning” versus “treating,” I ran across this lovely anonymous quote–

“When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving me advice, you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me and you are telling me why I shouldn’t feel that way, you are trampling my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems, you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

Perhaps that’s why prayer works for some people. Because God is mute and He doesn’t offer advice or try to fix things. He just listens and trusts you to work it out for yourself. So, please, just listen and hear me. And if you want to talk, wait a few minutes for your turn and I promise I’ll listen to you.”

Dr. Wolfelt
