I 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.
      Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

My head is spinning tonight with all of the things that are written on our family calendar for this week.  It’s almost as if I am in the powerful winds that tore through the mountains around Elijah so many years ago.

It’s one of those weeks where I know that each day holds so many different things “to do” that it would be easy to miss those gentle whispered words from God all along the way.

When I miss them, I end up ugly and stressed out, and I do not want to have that kind of week.  I’m sure that Tim doesn’t want me to have that kind of week either. 🙂

My goal as I head to bed tonight is to have a meaning”full” Monday in spite of the long list of things I need to accomplish.  I want to be still enough to hear God say, “What are you doing here, Tammy?”

Being able to hear Him in spite of the craziness around me keeps me focused on what’s important and helps me remember the real reason I am here.

I’m praying that you have a meaning”full” Monday too and that you are able to be still enough to hear God’s voice when it comes not in a whirlwind or in an earthquake…..but in a gentle whisper.

What I’m trying to say is this,

Please have a Monday that is full of meaning……
