Tender Whispers

Quiet is rare now. It can rarely be heard over the distractions and chaotic noise. It is hard to hear quiet. But I noticed something. Even now, when the world is so loud, if I stop everything and just listen, I can hear the very small hum of a dragonfly’s wings as it changes directions. The world is still making noise but I noticed that if I don’t make noise or do anything but focus, I can hear it. And I don’t think it is a coincidence that God speaks to us in a still, small voice. He wants us to stop what we are doing and be quiet and focus on Him to speak. It lends itself to the humble prayer heart that can hear God’s whisper in a thunderstorm or battlefield. God speaks softly so we know it is Him. He is far too important and great to have to yell or compete with noise. But when we focus and quiet ourselves and listen, He is honored and reveals His message to the humble listener. How beautiful a picture that is! How magnificent is our God!
