The Sound of March

Mar 5, 2020 | Writer's Blog | 0 comments

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3:22 NKJV)

“The month of March can’t get a straight-up compliment!” bemoaned my friend whose birthday lands in March. I agreed. There’s not much occurring visually in this month that warrants praise. A soggy mitten found under a melting pile of snow, a bedraggled plant left in the garden over the winter, pieces of newsprint and other assorted trash littering the streets, and of course, the doggy poo scattered about soggy backyards. Not much to tantalize the eyes.

Perhaps we’re “looking” in the wrong places. Maybe it’s our sense of hearing that is most awakened in this disreputable month. Review with me this list of 10 sounds that could have you singing the praises of March.

  1. Melting icicles dripping from the rooftops
  2. Birds singing their wakeup calls in the morning
  3. A chirping chorus of spring peepers in the woodlands and wetlands
  4. A melting, swollen stream rushing over rocks
  5. A mighty wind on a stormy day
  6. An exultant Easter hymn being rehearsed
  7. Bleating of a baby lamb
  8. Staccato dribbling of a basketball
  9. Triumphant whoosh of the net
  10. Crack of a bat against a ball

And beyond this list, there is the voice of God, who is always speaking if we tune our ears. “How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!” (Psalm 139:17,18 NLT.) That’s a lot of thoughts He is thinking towards us, and we are privy to them if we care to open our spiritual ears.

May our sense of hearing be aroused, both in the natural and the supernatural, as we proceed through March!
