Every Sunday I post a Song Selection on Facebook, as my “Sagacious Sunday Greeting”, which speaks to a variety of experiences we go through on this journey called life. Back on February 4, 2018, I chose “Listen” by Beyonce from the movie Dreamgirls. In this song, which she dedicates to her husband at the time, she declares that she will no longer be bound by his ignorance or his choice to ignore her dreams, her desires, her passion, her mission, her vision by not listening.
I decree and declare that WE ALL NEED TO LISTEN!!! We need to listen to our children. Listen to their words, listen to their facial expressions, listen to their nonverbal cues and their gestures. Listen to their movements – the rhythms of their disappointment, frustration, and confusion… the beats of their doubts, low-self-esteem, haughtiness, aggressiveness, bitterness, and anger… the patterns of their disobedience, peer pressure, mood swings, isolation, and bewilderment. WE ALL NEED TO LISTEN!!! Often our children are crying in ways that tears are not seen, cries are not produced, and questions are not asked. Our children talk to us in so many ways yet we demand that they speak and use their words – when in reality there are things that they experience and go through that words cannot be found to describe in that very moment and sometimes for years and decades later!!!
WE ALL NEED TO LISTEN!!! Listen to their dreams, to their goals, to their ideas… listen to the drawings they produce and the colors they use to bring it to life, to the moments of play and how they act out certain scenes with their toys… listen to their hearts, to the systematic sounds of the footsteps they take leaving out the door for school and returning home from a victorious yet possibly exhausting day. WE ALL NEED TO LISTEN!!!
There is so much hurt, so much pain, so much turmoil going on all around us and trust and believe our children are not exempt!!! I challenge us all that from this moment on WE WILL ALL LISTEN!!!
Be sure to let us know how you plan to listen in the comment section below.
Until next time...Stay Forever Blessed and Highly Favored
