In our noisy and busy world, it is hard to find or create quiet moments. I am the worst offender of this. As soon as I walk in the house the television comes on and pretty much stays on until I leave. I can try to defend or justify why I do this, but if I am forced to be completely honest…. it is hard to be alone with nothing but your thoughts, isn’t it?
Even in my shower ritual in the morning, I have the radio blaring. Sometimes I can tune everything out… and this morning I did. I had a little conversation with God. It was unexpected, but it happened.
As the weather report came across the radio and said we could get 12 to 18 more inches of snow tonight, I thought to myself…”I don’t know if I can deal with this.” And then I heard this still small voice saying… “don’t remember checking in with you.”
It felt very much akin to the moments where I have shared my opinion with a boss or supervisor and they decide not to go with it, or to go a different direction.
It made me think: this must be why the bible talks so much about humility.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10
So, if you are asking for my opinion on more snow… I vote no… but, I realize that it really isn’t my call.
And, I… well, … I am okay with that.
