How often did I not hear,
the Lord’s voice when He was near
with all the noises in my head
I must admit ~ I did not regard it!
How often did I not see,
where the Lord was leading me
with all the things I must do,
I must admit ~ I did not notice it!
How often did I not embrace,
the Lord’s loving touch of grace
with all the confusion inside me
I must admit ~ I did not feel it!
How often did I not detect,
the Lord just wanting to protect
with all the commotion going on
I must admit ~ I did not sense it!
How often did I not discern,
what the Lord wanted me to learn
with all the different points of view
I must admit ~ I did not recognize it!
How often now do I hear,
the voice of my Lord drawing near
now that I have learned to be still . . .
I must admit ~ I finally listen to it!
King James Version
“Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
Deborah Ann Belka
