Listen in Silence

From Isaiah 41:1:  “Listen to Me in silence, O coastlands; let the peoples renew their strength; let them approach, then let them speak; let us together draw near for judgment.”

Daily life racing ahead

Bearing with its constant noise

Searching for journey’s beachhead

Father’s mercy transmits poise

 

Listen in silence, God speaks

Hearing His comforting voice

Quieting peace, each heart seeks

Father calms, let man rejoice

 

Heaven breathes, stillness exhales

Shining His light, never fear

Leaving dark, wilderness trails

Father leading, always near

 

Schedule time, only for God

Drawing near, learning His way

Transforming sinful facade

Father’s blessed Word, let’s pray

American writer Madeleine L’Engle captures the essence of meaning found in this poem with these words:  “Deepest communion with God is beyond words, on the other side of silence.”
