Perhaps you can file this under strange… or not.
About two weeks ago, I began to notice a ringing in my ears. A steady high-pitched tone.
Now for the most part, I do not hear this ‘ringing’ constantly, but I quickly realized that I could focus and bring this tone to the forefront whenever I wanted to. Like it was always there, but I rarely noticed it unless I focused my attention.
Once in a while, it would find its way into my head on its own accord. Often, while I was in prayer. Or reading scripture.
Not surprisingly, I’ve come to associate this tone with the presence of God. Much of the time it is silent, my attention elsewhere. There are times when it comes into my head, drawing my attention to the Lord. And there are times when I go “looking for it” – quickly comforted by its presence.
I hear it now, loudly, and it makes me smile.
