When Did We Stop Listening?

There are voices all around us.
Talking
Shouting
Whispering
Trying to get our attention.
Telling us, informing us, calling us, advising us, speaking at us.
Principles
Laws
Steps
Giving us meaning, efficiency, substitutes and functions.
If we listen!
More the often we hear a series of problems that need to be solved or principles that need to mastered.
But the desire of Christ is not to engage our intellect but to ignite our hearts.
He whispers to us with His passion,
He captures us with His dreams
He heals us with His wounds,
He delivers us from our fears,
He wraps us in His beauty,
He reveals to us His mystery,
He touches us with his ecstasy,
He sings to us with His poetry,
He loves us with His everlasting delight.
If we listen
Christ is calling to us in every moment of life.
Inviting us into his life of beauty and intimacy.
Awakening us to His glory alive inside of us.
His voice is always speaking to us,
When did we stop listening?
