Hey, there, friends. Not a lot to speak but the pondering of why I have not a lot to speak. 😏

Should have something to say, God.

Why don’t I have anything to say?

Loud, clamoring chaos has ripped

Holes in the very

Fabric of our country.

And here I sit in relative silence.

Where are my carefully crafted yet

Sharp assessments of our crumbling

Society?

Where is wise counsel to encourage

And exhort?

The pressing plea to keep You at our

Center?

I survey the oh-so-human travesty of

The last little while

And I find my response coming up

So…quiet.

My words quite nearly, almost

Astonishingly…absent.

Why, Lord? Surely I should have a

Wealth of thoughts to pen today!

Why the silence in my soul?

Ah…Silence.

And here is the answer:

Well, daughter, the thoughts are there,

Gathering in your heart,

Filling in the well,

Preparing to flow

When the time is right

And the words are clear.

For now, no flurry is needed.

No profoundness required.

For silence is sometimes the place you must go

When the noise of the world is ringing in your head

And you recognize

You must be earnestly seeking to hear from Me ….

May we all find those moments of silence in these chaotic times and earnestly listen for His voice! Blessings and Prayers, my friends!

  1. Amen, Marisa. Your post makes me think of the verse, “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). In fact, really, I think your post is an excellent example of this verse.

    May the Lord’s peace be upon you, Marisa.

  2. As I read this, I thought of Mark 4:39 –
    Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

    And also John 14:27, where Jesus said:
    Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    Peace in the midst of a storm is a wonderful thing!

  3. Beautiful post.
    God, in his divine wisdom, often asks us to quietly wait to hear his voice when the world becomes especially noisy.

    In the midst of confusing changes, God reminds us that He is the great I AM.
