I live in a world of words. So much talk surrounding me every single place I turn: people, books, social media, music. We want to find our voice and be heard, because everyone else is already talking. The world has has many voices vying for my attention. So many voices that I can hardly focus attention on any of them.

Where are the people who will take time to stand back and listen, the ones who understand that the greatest Word has already been spoken?

Enough of the talking. It’s time to listen, to be transformed by Truth that stands out among all the voices whirling around my head.

  1. p.s. I’m not saying there isn’t a time to talk. Just sometimes seems like it’s so easy to talk so much that we (read, I) can forget to listen to the truth that transcends everything else. :)

  2. As wise old King Solomon said “There is a time for everything”
    How ready we are to let the good become the enemy of the best! May God help us!

  3. I am reminded of Samuel, who said readily, “Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth”; and of Mary, who sat quietly listening to Jesus at His feet, not distracted by the things that “needed to be done.” And what did Jesus say, but that she had chosen the “good portion”?
    Thanks for this post, Amy; it’s something I need to be thinking about right now.
