I can see it in the distant horizon, but I cannot quite make it out. There seems to be a darkness around it with a shadow of light. I cannot understand why, but it draws me. Closer and closer I come. It speaks to my heart, my soul, my inner being, as nothing has ever done before.

I hesitate.

Everything within me desires to know what it is. The longer I look, the darkness dissipates and I begin to see a glimmer of light. I am drawn even more to it and begin to slowly walk toward it. As I walk, my stride widens and my pace begins to increase as the light begins to shine brighter.

I am no longer walking; I am now running to it.

The light draws me and I hear my name. I stop dead in my tracks and listen to the voice. The voice calls me to come nearer. It is a small voice, yet it dominates my soul. It takes hold of me and I am compelled to draw near.

I cannot resist the call. The call inspires me to write of His goodness and His love; to tell of His peace and His joy. It calls me to share His sacrifice for all. The call inspires me to live forever.

The title was perfect and the story was inspirational. That still small voice moves mountains. Keep writing.
