The New York Times reports that during the attacks of

September 11, the communication between rescue workers and their commanding officers was not good. Instead of reaching the workers by radio to warn of the imminent collapse of the Trade Center Towers, a messenger had to be sent by foot across acres, dodging flaming debris and falling bodies, to deliver the news in person. He arrived with the information less than one minute before the first tower fell.

Maybe your life feels a little like September 11th. It is completely out of control with the falling debris of debt, family disfunction, work pressure, bad health, or all the above! But your communication with the Commander can be different.

Can you hear him calling out the orders "That guy is bad news." "You're going to spend all that on what?!" "Love her like I loved you!"

Open your ears and hear what God is saying. Open your mouth, and ask him what to do. “Does He who implanted the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?" (Psalm 94:9)
