A Gental Thunder
A story by Max Lucado, from A Gentle Thunder : Hearing God Through the Storm
Once there was a man who dared God to speak.
"Burn the bush like you did for Moses, God and I will follow.
Collapse the walls like you did for Joshua, God and I will fight.
Still the waves like you did on Galilee, God and I will listen."
And so the man went and sat by a bush, near a wall close to the sea and waited for God to speak.
And God heard the man , So God answered.
He sent fire, not for the bush, but for a church.
He brought down a wall, not of brick, but of sin.
He stilled a storm, not of the sea, but of a soul.
And God waited for the man to respond.
And he waited ...
And waited ...
But because the man was looking at bushes, not hearts; bricks, not lives; seas and not souls, he decided that God had done nothing.
Finally he looked at God and asked, "Have you lost your power?"
And God looked at him and said, "Have you lost your hearing?"
To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love.
