Yesterday and old friend called me as she was trying to prepare a few last-minute quotes on a lesson. She was in a hurry before church, and I was in the chaos of finishing up breakfast. Between one child watching a home movie and another one talking to me, I just couldn't hear my friend! I switched rooms, I was followed. My husband came to the rescue, and I went outside. It was quiet and peaceful, and I could hear.
Isn't that how it is with our Heavenly Father? He's trying so hard to talk to us, but we are surrounded by noise and distractions, and we just can't hear him.
I'm sure someone else has posted a similar experience on here, but it's always a nice reminder to stop and listen!
