Morning begins with quietness

Behind locked doors, many hiding

Disciples and others mourning

Feeling God no longer guiding


Overcome with grief and sorrow

Memories fill with harshest tone

Quietness gathers in God’s hands

Barren cross stands bloody, alone


His torturous execution

Rabbi, teacher forever gone

Faith shattered, only quietness

Living as ignored Roman pawns


Confused, lacking understanding

What will tomorrow ever bring?

God waits with patient quietness

Sadness fills His heart, death its sting


From this darkness, quietness breathes

Hidden events still playing out

Love’s greatest story, not finished

God triumphs, never any doubt

While it seems God’s Word is quiet on this day, He is orchestrating events to come.  While the world feels alone and forsaken, God is never quiet.  Tomorrow will shine light on His everlasting love and triumph.

  1. My devotion this morning was about silence. Your words are a beautiful description of the quiet before the storm of truth leaves a tomb empty and hearts filled with faith and praise! Praise God!
