Eager to Be Heard

I wish I was better with bird names.
I wish I could just hear their sweet song coming from high up in a tree somewhere and announce with great confidence, “Oh, that’s a red-winged something-something.”
Sadly…I cannot.
Like a couple of days ago – I happened to glance up from the kitchen sink to see what looked like someone's run-away canary sipping from my patio fountain. I just stopped and stared not wanting to scare it away. It stared back at me through my dirty window, (water spotted from my doves who splash around in their water dish) bright yellow and alert waiting for my next move. It quickly fluttered away toward the pepper trees and I returned to filling the dishwasher.
Minutes later, the little darling started in with such a beautiful call. Such a sweet song from such a tiny creature eager to be heard.
Hmmm…aren’t we all eager to be heard?

It seems the enemy’s running at full speed through our world today
trying to silence the voice of the believer.
Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, (Psalm 107:2)
2 Corinthians 5:20 says we are ambassadors for Christ. We’re to be fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). The gospel is to be published among all nations (Mark 13:10).
How can we NOT share His amazing work in our lives???
I just want to encourage you, friend…Share. Your. Story. Share what the Lord has done for you. Share how He’s pulled you through. Share who you were then and who you are now and let the world know that it’s all because of Jesus.
Write it. Speak it. Sing it. Share it. Talk it up and never let the story wane because it hasn’t ended yet. Your story isn’t over. If you’re still here, He’s STILL working! There’s more to be done. There’s someone who still needs to hear about Him through you! Someone out there is hungry for the joy and the peace and the power of our one true living God.
Let your story sing bigger and louder than those trying to silence it. 
Oh, dear friend...your heart beats because of the Lord. 
If it beats for the Lord…let the world know it.
