Ears to Hear

Sometimes

It’s a whisper.

Sometimes

It’s simply

A heads-up

Followed by a nudge

In the same direction.

The thing is

That whisper, heads-up or nudge

Can come from

Any direction

At any time.

What I need

Always

Are ears to hear.

I really don’t want

To be hit upside the head

Every time I have

A lesson to learn…

Though that may be necessary

From time to time.

So,

If I’m going to truly fly

And reach unbelievable heights…

Not simply be deluded

By a false sense of soaring

As if in a flight simulator…

I must listen carefully

And keep my eyes

Wide open.

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches (Revelation 3:22, NIV).
