As I sit down to write this week’s blog, I am struggling to find a proper launch. I want to write something deep and impactful, but those pools seem out of my reach today. Maybe witty or funny, but I don’t feel either welling up. To be honest, what I feel is tired and kind of blah today and that seems to want to transfer to my screen. One of the things I learned a long time ago was that it was perfectly acceptable to have days and moments where inspiration was absent. The question becomes, can God speak into the ordinary hum drum? In I Kings we see Elijah win an historical and spectacular victory over the prophets of Baal and the evil King Ahab. Afterwards, he went into a major funk and complained to God. God’s response was to send Elijah to an ordinary cave and tell Him to wait for a word. God sent fire, earthquake, and tornado, but it was the gentle almost imperceptible whisper in which God revealed Himself. It was a very ordinary way to communicate. I believe that we have many more ordinary and plain days than we have inspired days in our lives. If we only hear God in the spectacular, then we are missing a lot of God. My understanding is that God is not reliant on how we feel, but that we are available. So, in my blah day today I will listen for the voice of God. I hope that you will do the same. Do not let emotional highs and lows define your relationship with God. He is there in all our moments and through all our moods. I pray that you hear His wonderful voice today.
