What does the Bible say about listening?

Being human is hard. We often live from a storm-tossed place with noise that can feel deafening even when it isn’t audible.

Walking hospital corridors towards the ICU to see my husband; rushing through afternoon traffic to get my son to the urgent care as the hives took over his neck; and getting a frantic call from my firstborn, who had hit bumpers with someone when he fell asleep at the wheel, have rounded out my last couple months. Adding to that, construction in our home as we made improvements only compounded my stress most days.

The sound of social media, the TV, and the world has left my mind swirling. The voices of the Lord, my own physical body, my dearest ones, and those I am called to serve have dwindled to a murmur. 

As I sat before the Lord this morning, Bible open across my lap, pen poised over my journal, a whisper seeped into my heart, Listen.

The Lord whispered over the noise and my spirit caught it. Listen.

But Lord, I am listening to you.

Listen, it came again.
