Inspired by the people encountered along life's pathway, Sandi Matts has learned to "Listen for the Whisper." The whisper represents the very breath of God speaking ever so softly but confidently, through each experience of our lifetime, through each voice we hear. It comes when we least expect it, we just need to be sensitive and aware.
It may be easy to recognize the whisper in the happy times but what about through the storms of life? Sometimes our lives are a bit unsettled, just like a thunderstorm, with the chaos of the wind and rain, and with fear persuading our reactions. Thunderstorms are powerful and are a perfect metaphor for the trials of life. If we just ride out the fury, we may be blessed with a rainbow on the other side, with its beautiful colors offering us hope and peace and tranquility, and a greater appreciation for sunny days.
The contrast of a whisper and a storm inspires us to be mindful of the energy surrounding us. Like a storm, God has tremendous power. Yet in the midst of all the chaos, in the center of the storm, is where we find the calm. It’s there, if we listen, we will hear the small gentle whisper, as God guides us to the light!
