Listen your way through the storm

I've Always admired that guy who was so shaken, aggressively buffeted, really feeling the heat so to speak, but then had such a profound inner calm that he moved forward effectively through very unsettling times. His name was Elijah, and his story is told in the Bible's Old Testament.

The tumult that surrounded him while he was camped on a mountain is described as earthquake, wind, and fire (see I Kings 19). But to me it illustrates states of thought. And right in the middle of all the chaos, the crucial factor was that Elijah was listening to God. Those very disturbing circumstances couldn't keep him from feeling, hearing, and recognizing "a still small voice."
