This is How You Photograph Giant Waves Crashing on a Beach

Joining with the #five minute Friday group of writers to write around a one word prompt.  Today’s prompt is: Loud

I am a quiet introvert, noise is an anathema to me, loud people drain me, loud noises are an assault on my senses, I don’t do loud!!

And if I am completely honest I don’t know how I am going to do in heaven!! Heaven is going to be a very noisy place between trumpets blowing, people praising with loud voices & myriads of angels rejoicing, not to mention oceans roaring and thunder crashing! Help!

So strange as it may seem, I have to trust that God will redeem even that broken bit of my character so that I too can join in the Song of the Lamb!  

Every bit of the broken me needs to be redeemed and healed, so that in wholeness I can live and move and rejoice with the rest of the redeemed and yes even so I can lift up my voice loudly!

Then I heard again what.sounded like the shout of a vast crowd or the roar of mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder:
Praise the Lord! For the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns.

Revelation 19:6

  1. I also had this realisation today on reading Rev 4 – that actually, heaven must be a very loud place. But I reckon, us introverts will be also be part of the worship ‘noise’ and so we’ll be fine 🙂


  2. I can be a very loud person. But I understand the quiet. I crave the peace of quiet sometimes. I do both. I would try to be quiet around you. #26FMF


  3. There are those who kindly say
    my life is a cartoon;
    like a donkey I will bray,
    and then howl at the moon.
    I bounce off walls from dawn to dawn,
    and take but little sleep,
    for there’s so much that’s going on,
    to miss it is to weep.
    And I like to sing with verve;
    my melodies brings tears
    when they strike a music-nerve,
    so best cover your ears.
    I may get some ridicule,
    but man, I love to play the fool!

  4. It is hard to imagine how Heaven will be the perfect place for each of us – still uniquely and wonderfully made as we are. But, we know it will be!!:)
