Tone It Down

Warning: Sometimes the tone of frustration can lead to miscommunication.

Have you ever been so frustrated you don’t hear what someone is saying. Have you ever become tone deaf in communication with someone? It feels like the CD is scratched and you just can’t listen to it anymore. I have dealt with multiple challenges and communication issues for a few weeks and I am still learning whether I’m speaking a loving truth, or a hard truth I must be aware of my tone.

When I listen to music, if the tone is not right the whole song sounds off, it’s hard to listen and it becomes harsh to the ears. Sometimes we have to tone it down so everyone can hear. When we allow ourselves to hear how God speaks to us in scripture we find His tone always comforts when things are uncomfortable. We find encouragement when we are discouraged and peace in our storms.
