Five Minute Friday: Whisper

» Posted by on Sep 5, 2014 in Heartfelt Treasures | 1 comment

Fitting in time for today’s #FiveminuteFriday. After all, it’s only 5 minutes!! #FMF is a flash mob group of wonderful ladies who take the word of the day and write for five minutes. Today’s word is “whisper”.

Whisper
Sometimes the most powerful emotions can be expressed in a whisper.
Lean closer. Let me tell you something. Just for you.
“I love you.”
“Please don’t leave me.”
“Will you marry me?”
“You need Jesus.”
“Help.”
“I have cancer.”
“I am going home now.”

And then in the words of our LORD, from 1 Kings 19:9b-13

“Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah and said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
He answered, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God almighty. You see, the Israelites has forsaken your covenant, torn down our altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I am the only one left, and they are going after my life to do me in.
[The LORD] said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD. The LORD will be passing by.”
There was a strong, powerful wind tearing apart the mountain and shattering the cliffs before the LORD. But the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake. But the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire. But the LORD was not in the fire. After the fire, a quiet whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his cloak around his face and went out to stand at the cave’s mouth. And then a voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

What are we doing here? Is our life so full of rushing here and there that we can’t stop to hear our Father God speak to us in a whisper?
He is saying, Come closer my child. Let me whisper to you my love.

Come closer.

Whisper.

  1. Beautiful. Good reminder that most often the Lord speaks to us not in a bombing voice but a whisper.
