 In the beauty of silence, in the palm of His hand-A word to Christendom

The Beauty of Silence in the Palm of His Hand

Ride and ride with all your might
Push the horse into the night
Towards the dawn that’s straight ahead
Fleeing darkness fleeing dread

I have swam in the stormy seas of chaos
I have been caught in the lightning storms of life
Pushing mighty boulders up perpetual hills
I have baked in the sun and shivered naked with the chills

I have been a starving man
With my nose pressed against the window pane
I have wrestled with this world and sanity
And known something of what it means to be insane

And now I listen to the silence
Tis a table set before me fit for a King
A glorious feast of beauty and peace
An immovable Spirit deep within

And in this silence where there is no noise
Can you hear it? Can you hear the still small voice?
A feast indeed to a starving man
To remember in your heart where it all began

In Christ alone I stand or fall
Tis a starving man who cannot hear His call
His silence His peace tis manna to my soul
For distractions and noise surely take their toll

Till there’s nothing left but a valley of bones
And tortured men with hearts full of stones
Starving and dying and withering away
They have long since forgotten how to listen and pray

God is calling He is calling today
We must learn how to listen, to listen and pray
Distractions must cease and an end to all noise
Till we hear again that small still voice

Oh Christendom how often I would gather you in
Away from the world and its noise and its din
Those who can hear me in that day they shall stand
In the beauty of silence in the palm of His hand.

Interesting...

I, too, have been distressed with the noise the world imposes upon us via its music, blaring at you everywhere you go, in effect stifling the whisper of God.

Last week I posted on the gable end of our house, "Let us be silent so we can hear the Whisper of God." (I cut the letters out of vinyl with a cricut machine. This can be seen from the street which is likely 40 feet from the house. Found this saying on a plaque purchased at Hobby Lobby.) It speaks to me, reminding me how urgent it is that I need to be listening for God's whisper.

So true.

One can read the news and if it is to be believed as reported it can scare your silly. On the other hand, how many of the naysayers predictions have come to pass? Their battling average is unimpressive. In any case, it does work to distract one from the LORD, it gets you worrying like nothing else can and will.

In the meantime, I deeply appreciate the sustaining power of the LORD and am trusting he will be with us and if things do get bad, He will lead us, sustain us BUT we need to stay close to him now when things go well and not wait until things get unbearable.
