Do You Talk To Yourself?

Do you talk out loud to yourself?  It’s okay to admit it if you do.  I’ll be the first to say, “I do!”

Recently, I heard someone say, “Talking to yourself is a sign of intelligence,” so I did what any intelligent person would do, I GOOGLED IT!  Yep, that’s right, “Scientists at Bangor University in the UK found talking to yourself out loud is not only helpful but may indicate a higher level of intelligence.” (We’ll forget about that little “may” and go with it!)  Now, who wants to be second?

Do you talk to things that cannot carry on a conversation with you?  I do that, too!  I talk to my dog, CallieMarie and I talk to the turtle at school.  I’ve been tempted to pet the turtle, but resist because I’m a little afraid of him.  I have a cockatiel named Spike that I talk to, and he actually talks back, usually repeating what I said to him!  Some people talk to their plants. I don’t have any plants, but if I did, I would probably talk to them, too.

Do you talk to God throughout the day, or do you limit your conversation to only your prayer time? I love the fact that I can talk to God any time of the night or day.  I rarely say amen after my prayers because there’s no end to our conversation.

Did you know God, Himself invites you to talk to Him?

  • Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”  Jeremiah 3:3

  • Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:12

  • Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.  Psalm 50:15

Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve talked to God, and you’re not sure if He remembers you.  I can assure you if you’re a child of God, one who has asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, He knows your name, and He is waiting to hear from you.

  1. I talk to myself too, glad to know it means I’m intelligent! I also enjoy talking to the Lord throughout my day. Especially during times in my car. I’m glad He knows our name!
