LORD, WHY DO YOU WHISPER?

Lord, Speak to me.
Just donít whisper.
Itís loud down here.
The phones are always ringing.
The TV is usually blaring.
People are always talking.
Traffic is mostly noisy.
Children are always playing.
The dishwasher is running.

The alarm goes off.
Iím tired and I snooze it.
I jump in the shower.
I grab a bagel.
I rush out the door.
Iím on my cell in the car.

The office is busy and loud.
Lord, speak to me.
Just donít whisper.
Itís loud here.
Lunchtime is with co-workers.
Sorry I laughed at that joke.
Sorry for misusing work time.

Itís time to go home.
Rush hour again.
Iím talking on the phone again.
Sorry I cut someone off in traffic.
Sorry I lost my temper and yelled.
Even worse, I used sign language.

Iím on hold.
Speak to me Lord.
Just donít whisper.
Now, I home.
Activity is non-stop.
TV when itís not.
Lord, why do You whisper?

I want to know Your will.
But, I canít hear it.
I remember You speak in a still small voice.
But, itís loud down here.
Or, am I just not listening?
Am I quiet long enough to hear?
Do I spend time alone with You?
Would I recognize Your voice?
Lord, whisper to me.
Iím listening.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This was very nice, Jerry. God bless you.

Jerry, You have put into words what I have prayed! I have to keep reminding myself to be still and listen. Your message is clearly written, and very worthwhile reading.

Thank you for sharing this excellent writing. I am so glad he whispers, as he nudges his children to come apart and hear what is on his heart. Thanks, again!

You know, it so, so funny, but just last night I was sitting alone out on the front porch, praying -- "Lord, could You just speak a little louder?" And His response? "Everything I speak is with love. Can you hear me now?" Besides the fact that He whispers, He's got a sense of humor to boot. Wonderful article!

Jerry this is great! We need to be reminded to spend quite time alone with the One we love.
Gary Sims 29 Nov 2004
Jerry - very well done! the only reason we do not hear God's whisper is because of the din in which we fill our lives. Thank you - Gary
