Do You Hear What I Hear?

Hear the noise. But listen only to the voice that is still scared and the source of sound.

If I listen to what people say, I will not hear the voice of my C reader. It does not matter if the people are speaking good or bad. it is my C reader that matters most. If I reach without thinking or respond in thought or even participate in matters that distract me from the priorities of the Christ, then certainly I will lose right of HIS Glory, forget my testimony, and end up lacking in praise, thanksgiving, and worship.

We, I, must not be drawn away by the noise and vain sounds of people. Be careful even when it is the sound of the inner-me, which can sometimes be the enemy.

Daily, moment-by-moment, the sounds of rumor attack. The right action is to assume a position of gratitude. Remember our, my, first love. We cannot carelessly shake our fist at people nor can we mandate correction about other folks' behaviors. But in order to make a true contribution, we are required to be spirit led, knowing that the Creator never fails. And we never fail in our efforts when we do as the Creator wants, what the Creator wants, how the Creator wants a thing or a situation to be handled.

Just like hearing, seeing is a choice. Most important is not what we see but how do we see. How do we see circumstances, people and situation? Can we see without judging or is our seeing grounded in a bully nature? Can we make a choice to things in their brightest light? It does not require any power to condemn people. It does not require any power to not care. But real muscle and effort are needed to hear the accurate words of instruction and truth. If the choice is to react and respond better, then we are going to have to create how we do things, not just what. The how is the quality that allows us to access a path of the right acts, to plow through us.

So don't just want to do better. Listen to what is being spoken and poured out from a higher level, a deeper place, that will always provide clarity, specific care and most of all: there is a sacred sound that is always waiting for us to remember that the Creator is good, the Creator is great, and the Creator is all these things through us.

Do you hear what I hear?
