Speaking of voice, I have always wanted to do this so, I got on the elevator at the hospital the other day along with two nurses. After the door closed and we started moving, I said, “Excuse me. Do you hear what I hear?” I slanted my head a bit downward and to the side and I could see the nurses were also listening so, just before we stopped, I said, “Oh, it’s OK; I’ve just always wanted to do that to see the reaction.” Fortunately, the nurses laughed and did not escort me off for a mental evaluation.
Life needs to have some humor. We need to laugh as often as we can. We hear the voice of different ones and groups in this world and if we aren’t careful we will be overloaded with stress and depression. Laugh, it’s a great medicine and be careful as to what you are listening to.
Ask the Lord to help you always hear His voice and, then be still and present yourself in a quiet manner so as to hear what He has to say to you. Whose voice are you listening to?
