The Monsters Are Still Due on Maple Street

Hello, dear friends!

Still gathering my thoughts lately and leaning on His presence all the while.

Hope you are feeling Him near to you as well.

It occurred to me this morning that this piece from a few months ago remains very apt for where we are right now. As such, while I am still in the gathering thoughts phase, I figured it was worth a reshare.

Thanks for reading. May it remind us of He who holds the truth and the salvation we all need. Blessings and prayers! ❤

Silence

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!
