(OK. I do know my alphabet. How “U” got published before “T”, I don’t have a clue.)
Anyway………today I’m thankful for all the “voices” in my life. The voices that encourage me. The voices that challenge me. The voices that make me grow up. The voices that soothe me. The voices that calm me down. The voices that irritate me. The voices that make me mad. I’m grateful for all of them.
But mostly I’m grateful for the “The Voice”. God’ voice. I believe I hear Him in all the human voices I hear every day. It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking that God’s voice is always ethereal, mysterious, always “holy” sounding. But the more I learn to recognize God’s voice, the more I hear Him in the most ordinary people and in the most ordinary circumstances. Yes, sometimes I hear Him in the most magnificent of ways but not usually.
So today I’m grateful for all the voices I hear every day. I hope I always listen to the most subtle of messages from the most unexpected of people. Those that aren’t like me, that don’t believe like me, that don’t think like me and even those that don’t believe like me.
Especially those that don’t believe like me.
