Are You Listening?

tumblr_lo8bohOlXZ1qz6f9yo1_500As you read today’s inspirational story, I ask that you stop and think of how many ways the Lord has spoken to you in the passed few days.

I was overwhelmed with what lay ahead for John with the surgery and temporary ileostomy. During mid-week services, the hymns that were sung spoke right to my heart. The words exhorted the believer to continue on even when the days are dark and it feels as though we are all alone! God reached down and hugged His child last night :-)

The man whispered,

God, speak to me!

And a meadowlark sang. But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled,

God, speak to me!

And the thunder & lightning rolled across the sky. But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said,

God, let me see you!

And a star shined brightly. But the man did not see.

And, the man shouted,

God, show me a miracle!

And a life was born. But the man did not notice.

So, the man cried out in despair,

Touch me, God, and let me know you are here!

Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man. But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
