We have been opening up our church on a Thursday for a time of quiet reflection and prayer. It has been a wonderful way of listening to the Lord and feeding our spirits.
However, today things were different! The municipality has been fixing burst waters pipes and the roads outside our church for a while and today was the the day the jackhammers came to town! Wow, it was loud! Even the sound of music couldn't drown out the noise and I have to admit finding 'peace' was tough! And so this got me thinking:
"How does the noise of our lives distract us from listening the voice of God?"
"What loud noises make it hard for us to prayer and focus on the things of Jesus?"
