Mountain top

Mountain top


I sought You on the mountain top

where a howling wind pierced my ears

with a mighty rushing whistling sound

An earthquake shook the cliffs

and knocked me off my feet

so I cowered and crawled upon the ground

A blazing fire began to rage

as desperately I searched

but You were nowhere to be found

Then a still small voice you whispered

In my ear as gentle as a breeze

You truly know how to astound

Yes so true

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on September 22, 2019:

I have found that once we surrender to our Father it will speak in a still small voice. At first I thought they were external until a few years after my New Birth, then it became voice from within me. As a child I heard what I thought was an external voice a few times and during my new conception until some 2 years after my rebirth.

Before I discovered it was internal I was told to do something from internal and refused only to encounter dreadful hardships for disobeying it. When I asked why the hardship it said "I told you to" do something different. Then I felt the need to fast for 3 days, I thought to please God, a after a day and a half I could no longer do it and cried out and the inner voice said "get up and get back on the road" and within 100 yards a supply of good was provided. From that I discover that is where the voice comes.

Added to that is my eldest sister often heard a voice her other sibling couldn't when we were in the country and would run and ask mother if she had called. Our devout traditional Christian would say "that was the devil" so after my new birth I realized my mother didn't know the truth about whence comes the voice of God.

Thanks for sharing that.
