Still small voice

One of the Holy Ghost's titles is "the still small voice".   

1 Kings 19:11-13 "And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before theLord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before theLordbut the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:

 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.  

 13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?"

I sometimes see young kids like 4-6 years old that like to make sure everyone knows when they come into a room or arrive at a house.  They like to announce it so there is no confusion who has arrived.   It's usually done in a fun way.  And I enjoy it.      

When I read scriptures like the above, I have to stop and consider how the Spirit comes into a room. The still small voice to me doesn't always make an announcement.  The fact that it's still and small suggests calling attention to itself is not high on the agenda.  You have to be quiet, and listen.  The less crap in your head from the internet the better.
