The world is a noisy place and as we turned the calendar to a new year, it became clear it was about to get even noisier.

The news can be found 24/7 on many channels, social media is constant, and the internet is full of information. All of it seems to clamor for our attention.

We are pulled in several directions at the same time, and often to places we don’t even want to go.

There’s a story in the Old Testament which is one of my very favorites.

Elijah, in fleeing for his life, has an encounter with God. The Lord tells him to go out on the mountain and stand there. As he was standing there, Elijah experienced a windstorm which was so terrible that the rocks were torn loose. But the Lord was not in the wind.

He then experienced an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake either.

After the earthquake, he experienced a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.

After the fire, there was the sound of a gentle whisper.

After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
(1 Kings 19:12, NIV)
