I am waiting on a whisper.
I have come to a fork in the road. A “good one.” A challenging one. But today I feel tired from it. Wondering, back and forth, which way to go. Today I am sitting at the side of the road waiting on the Lord to reveal his plan. It isn’t easy to wait. The rest of the world seems to be rushing by . . . and it isn’t easy to hear the Lord when life seems to move at a whirl-wind pace. But the Lord often comes in a whisper and today I have made the decision to wait.
“And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face
and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
He replied, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty.”
1 Kings 19:12-14
Are you waiting on the Lord? There is plenty of room here at the side of the road, and I do love company. There are very few of us I think.
So let’s wait together, shall we? Humbled down here, amidst the dust.
Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth;
out of the dust your speech will whisper.
And when His voice arises soft from the earth, may we proceed in the direction he would send us. And may it be said we “have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty.”
