“Be still my soul, the Lord is on thy side, bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.” –Catharine Von Schlegel

Chatter:  Do you hear it? It’s all around.  People talking about this, voicing their opinions about that. It’s omnipresent in so many ways.  From podcasts to political pundits, we are inundated with the sound of meaningless, trivial, non-relenting noise.  What seems like mass, chaotic clamor coming from a thousand different directions, however, is the culmination of a much-greater and sinister ploy.

With so many voices jockeying for our attention, we have insulated ourselves within the racketing walls of nothingness.  We hear much, but the heart is deaf.  This is the strategy of our enemy.  He has so manipulated the echoes of our lives that we hardly recognize the tone and timbre of the still, small voice.

We have conversations, in great detail, about God without ever having conversations with God.  Like Elijah of old, we stand in the dark cave of discontentment and listen for the earthquake, fire and wind.  The chatter of it all mesmerizes our minds, but our hearts remain void and empty.  Through the noise, God, in His gentleness and meekness calls us unto Himself.  He speaks; but do we hear?
