Lord, Help Me Have a Soft Heart

I read a verse yesterday that really hit me. It's found in Proverbs 17:10. Check out what it says, "A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool."
When I was growing up my daddy called me "Snoot." (He still does, but he and maybe a few others can get by with this. You may not call me this! LOL!)
Anyway, he always called me that. Except for when I was in trouble. Seriously, all my daddy had to do was call me Heather, and I'd burst into tears. See, when he switched to a serious tone and called me by my actual name, I knew that I'd disappointed him. And nothing upset me more than upsetting my daddy. I was my daddy's girl.
Now that I'm grown up I'm striving to serve another "Daddy." I'm striving to serve God, my heavenly Father. I want to be wise in serving Him. I want to be convicted at the slightest nudge He places on my heart. I want to have a soft heart that is open to His leading.
I don't want to be a fool who refuses to listen even when God has used every means to get my attention.
What about you?

SNOOT (I'm one who can get by with it) Isn't it wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father Loves us even more than our earthly father! Knowing how much our earthly father loves us,It's great to know what and awesome GOD we serve!!!!

Love you SNOOT! (Or as I love to call you sniglet!!!!)

I often asked why do we not listen to God when He is speaking in that still small voice. Why do I continue on until something big has to happen for Him to get my attention? I think you are absolutely right about having the soft heart so that we can hear!

Hi Heather. I love how you seem to really view God as your "Daddy." I think you make Him proud.
