Talk Louder!


at the beachI was talking to a classroom of 3rd graders and wanted to get the point across that God loved them so so much.  To do so, I lowered my voice — almost to a whisper — and said “You are loved”. 

I had them wrapped in wonder until a boy in the back yelled out, “Talk Louder!”

Since Makenzie’s death, I’ve wanted to tell God, “Talk Louder!”  I want Him to use His outside voice, inside me! More and more, I realize that God is  talking but not necessarily louder.  I can hear Him speaking in a friend who calls just to see how I’m doing.  I can hear Him speaking in a song that gives me hope.  I can hear Him speaking in the early morning as the sun is blossoming out from the horizon. I can hear Him speaking in the words of His love letter to me, “I will not leave you.  I will not forsake you.”

Peace
