Linking to The Gypsy Mama on Fridays. I have 5 minutes to write. The word is LOUD.
Here I go:
I don’t really like loud music, especially the decibels that make my ears ring. But I love it loud enough that I can hear it.
Yes I think I have a slight hearing problem. I keep saying that I will get my ears checked. But I don’t. I know I don’t hear the timer on the stove when others do; I have to turn up the volume on the TV; I say “pardon” more and more.
It is important to hear clearly. That’s why I ask others to repeat what they have said because I want to know. I wonder if I should do the same for God – should I ask Him to repeat what He has said. Maybe I haven’t heard Him clearly.
There are many things that cover up God’s messages – my emotions, activities around me, other voices, my sense of self.
I need to get away from all the distractions of this world, in order to find the clear message of God.

OOPS – my 5 minutes are up.
If you want to join The Gypsy Mama in her Five Minute Fridays read below.
Here are the rules:
Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write like we believe we can fly. Won’t you join us? (<—Tweet this!)
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
What a wonderful reminder to listen to God and not things get to loud in our lives! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the comment, Renae. Our lives have become so sound focussed that we don’t hear that quiet voice of God. Peace to you today.
