Greetings in His Name,
Do you guys remember basketball in Jr. Hi. It's when we first began playing other schools, so the coaching became more intense, and the fan noise reached a higher decimal. There is a story about a 13 year-old grandson who made the seventh grade basketball team. After the first week of practice, the grandfather asked him how he liked the team and did he enjoy playing. The boy's response was: "We haven't played any yet, just dribbling the ball while the coach plays loud music, and yells at us."
The grandfather was puzzled somewhat by that, but let it go, and asked him again next week. But the answer was similar. The coach is still playing the loud music and yelling at them. The grandfather asked the boy if he was yelling at just some of them. "No he yells at each one of us." So the grandfather went to practice, and asked the coach to explain.
The coach's explanation: "To be able to coach the guys during a game, I need them to be able to recognize my voice and to focus regardless of everything else going on around them."
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Isaiah 30:21
We are made to believe by His word, that He's always speaking? And that we can hear Him about all the other noise and all the varied voices around us?
Be blessed in the Lord today, and remember that you are loved!!!
