FYI: Posts will be sparse around here until I replace my laptop.... Coming back to work after Christmas break apparently was too hard and it quit on me!

A whispered Hallelujah...

Perhaps Hallelujahs are not always loud and magnificent, boldly declaring "Praise ye the Lord!" Perhaps they can be quiet whispers of praise, slipping by nearly unnoticed by others. In those quiet whispers one can really see God and feel His presence. After all, the Lord did not appear to Elijah in the great and powerful wind, the earthquake, or in the fire. The Lord was in the gentle whisper.

1 Kings 19:11-13
The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.

Sunsets, like hallelujahs, are not always bold and magnificent. The quiet ones, slipping daylight into dusk, speak just as much of God's glory. Barely noticeable, they tint the clouds the faintest pink and orange then fade away altogether...

a whispered Hallelujah...praise ye the Lord!
