Communication

"And I wonder where these dreams go, when the world gets in your way.
What's the point in all this screaming no one's listening anyway."

Communication has been frustrating me lately. A lot.

Both at work and in my NaNoWriMo project. At work it's saying the same thing multiple ways and using every ounce of energy to explain yourself, only to be entirely unheard or misunderstood. In my writing, it's my frustrations with not being able to get the right descriptions out and feeling like whatever poetry I create is just a repeat of something that's been said or done before. So I'm frustrated. Feeling like I'm speaking and shouting and still can't get my point, my thoughts, my ideas out.

And then I realize that's probably how God feels most of the time.

He probably does.

Wait, your job, are you a teacher? I spend my days working to communicate...

I think communication is one of the biggest issues we face today.

I agree with your statement about God wholeheartedly.

Don't you just love it when you start complaining and then God whispers to you "gee, that's how I feel about you..."

Really gets me.

I found that God really wants us to know him, and sometimes he makes us aware of things like this so we can understand his heart.

Love you and miss you dearly.
