Our society, our culture, is full of enough "truth distractions" to numb us 'til the end of time. It is a pervasiveness by many whose desire is to keep us in slumberville.

In the words of the old classic rock band, Buffalo Springfield, "Something's happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear." Yet the noise grows, the earth rumbles and shakes. And in the midst of it all Someone would like our attention.

Now, more than ever, there is such a dire need to get quiet, away from the noise. Listen. Look up. Look around. Take a long, hard look. Ponder. Question. Challenge. Ask what you really believe and don't believe.

Stop allowing someone else' beliefs to be simply yours. Discover truth for yourself. There is a plethora of people following people and looking for the next "big thing" or the next celebrity to follow.

Look around. Listen. It's getting noisier day by day. What they're calling news is getting old.

But Someone desires your attention. Someone who knows your name, knows everything about you, the good and the bad, and loves you more than you could ever imagine. He has the answers and He alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

But don't take my word for it. Get quiet and ask if Someone is listening. Someone is and Jesus would love to talk with you.

Life is shorter than we think. And it's too short to waste on noise.

"He who testifies to these things says, 'Surely I am coming quickly.' Amen! Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen!" —Revelation 22:20-21
