Linking up with Kate Moutang and friends for Five Minute Friday. The prompt is “Whisper.”
Little girls and friends of all ages
Whispering secrets meant only for the trusted ones
Sometimes the attempts I over hear make me smile
Knowing that they were not meant to be heard
And thinking of how mortified those who were whispering would be
Your secret is safe with me, I promise.
We all have whispered at some point in our lives and according to C. S. Lewis in his book, The Problem of Pain, so does the One Who is the Word and spoke the worlds into existence. Lewis notes, “God whispers in our pleasures …but shouts in our pains.” Interesting thought.
One explanation could be that we pay more attention to Him, tend to seek Him more when we are hurting, so the effect is like that of a shout.
* Please share your thoughts on the idea that God whispers to us in our pleasures and shouts in our pain. See the entire quote here.
