Jordan, “I learned that there is a time to listen, and a time to speak. Not everyone is open about their struggles, and that’s ok. It’s a process for each of us. Sometimes we need to see the courage and boldness of another individual, confessing his sins and struggles, to feel comfortable sharing our lives with one another. It can be hard to trust someone you don’t know well with your heart. I think it is so important to be ready to hear someone when they are sharing their heart, and to rely on the spirit to help us respond to them.

I feel like I have a lot of things that I forget to include God in by accident and this can be a problem. I need to depend on God and just pray to him all the time like it says in 1 Thess. 5:17 “Pray without ceasing” and ceasing means
