Listening

[Tick tock, tick tock]
[Beep beep]
[Screech]
[Wind]
[Murmur, murmur]

Noises fill my airspace.
Invading my thoughts.
Distracting
No where to go where my space isn’t polluted with noise,
but I sit and listen,
trying to listen above the noise – through it – in despite of it.
Listening for the still, small voice of God.

[Tick tock, tick tock]

Listening for God but there’s noise in my head.
Thoughts running around; bumping into each other.
Disjointed
Distracting
Discouraging
No where to go where my space isn’t polluted with noise.
God help me.
Speak above the noise – through it – scattering it – destroying it.
May Your still, small voice, drown out the noise.

[Tick tock, tick tock]

I keep listening,
for God will not disappoint.
I keep listening,
for God’s voice is all I want.
I keep listening…
