Back in January, I shared the below verses and thoughts with some friends.
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.1 Kings 19:11-12 (KJV)
God got Elijah away from other people; got his attention and perhaps reverence/awe with this loud, scary show; and then – and then He spoke. In just a quiet, little voice. Maybe sometimes God needs to get us away from others and get our attention with a lot of loud, scary stuff. (Did 2020 come to mind?) And then, He speaks. When “big” stuff happens, wait and listen for the small voice! …
Then I came across the following quotes on Pinterest, and decided to share this all with you! 😊
i think we ask God to speak to us and wait for a loud, booming voice to speak. and if you keep waiting for that you’ll miss all the little things He is saying to you. how He’s whispering to your heart.Joel Nobis, found on Pinterest
don’t miss Him in the quiet looking for Him in the loud.
Isn’t it amazing that God’s voice can make the mountains crumble, and in that same voice speak love gently into your heart?Pablo Versos, found on Pinterest
I don’t really have anything else to say on that topic, but there are two things I want to let y’all know!
1) I’ve decided to try to post at least once a week, usually on Monday. The email notification/preview thing doesn’t send out until the next morning though, so it’ll basically be Tuesday.
2) I’m planning to do seven, maybe eight, posts (!) for the days leading up to Easter. Two of them are simply lyrics of two Easter songs I love, though; so if you have any ideas or thoughts about Easter that you want to share with me, go ahead and share them! You might inspire a post. 😉😊
