Hearing Loss

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 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 a 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 He waited...
            And waited.

But because the man was looking
    at bushes, not hearts;
    at bricks and not lives,
    at seas and not souls,
        he decided that God had done nothing.

Finally he looked to God and asked, 
"Have you lost your power?" 
And God looked at him and said, 
 "Have you lost your hearing?" 
Mark 4:23-24 "If any man have ears to hear, let him hear." And he said unto them,

"Take heed what you hear: with what measure you use, it will be measured to you: and unto you that hear, shall more be given."
