Listen for His Voice

My Child?

Sweetheart, don’t you hear me?

I’m not talking in the whirlwind, and thunder and quaking earth.¹

Hush. The stillness. I am whispering to you in the quiet.

But, so often, you are rushing from one event to another, busyness on busyness. I’m harder to hear with the hustle and bustle of life buzzing in your ears. I’m still here and still speaking to you, but you’re no longer listening.

Dear one, stop, please.

Listen.

Gracious, that 5 minutes went fast! I’m clearly not a fast writer. Read more FMF posts on today’s prompt: Listen.

¹Super cool story when God spoke to Elijah in I Kings 19:9-18.

  1. My story was just the opposite. I’m listening but God is not speaking. Blessings to you!

    This reminds me so much of the verse that says we should be still and know that He is God! Yes, we do tend to do everything while rushing through our days.
    Much love XX
