Little Me, Big World


The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.
The God of glory thunders.
    The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
 the voice of the Lord is majestic.
Psalm 29:3-4

People fill their tiny little brains with so much noise, they drown out the world around them. Sometimes it’s busy, crazy, chaotic noise. Sometimes it’s white noise. Either way, it’s blocking out the rest of the world.

When someone pauses long enough to let the outside in, they call that an encounter. They pull it in, shut their shell, and put it on a shelf where they can see it, as it lives inside as a memory.

Mostly, we spend our lives inside our tiny heads, oblivious to the big world around. What would we experience if we open ourselves and let the outside in?
