Today is Friday, the fun day when we gather to type out poetry or prose without perturbation. If you want to join in the fun, just click here for more info.
Today's prompt is WHISPER
Sometime we run on fast forward. Well, mostly. And then we wonder why things happen, why we are in the middle of situations that are hard or painful. Usually it is because we are not listening.
Like Elijah who, after kicking it seriously on behalf of God, ran away in fear and was waiting for God to show up. He went through many stormy conditions before He heard God's voice.
"After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper," (1 Kings 19:12 NIV, emphasis mine).
My son learned a lesson in listening to my voice last night. I've asked all of my children to stop biting and crunching on things, since they have sealants on their molars. My big guy was very distressed over the crack he made in his tooth when, goofing around, he bit down on his spinner toothbrush.
Thankfully, after getting him to rinse with some water, and sending pictures to the dentist, we determined that it is a premolar that needs to come out. Apparently the cracking of them is common when they are being pushed out by permanent teeth.
His response to all this? I don't think I'm going to bite things anymore.
If only we would heed the whisper before it hurts, eh?
