The Silence Speaks

The silence speaks
Beckoning me to draw near
And listen
Words spoken inflict feelings not meant for me
Guilt
Condemnation
Fear
Anxiety
And questions that shouldn't matter
What?
Why?
How?
When?
What if?
Questions my intellect can't seem to let go of.

And then my spirit quietly reminds me
HE IS THE ANSWER.

The silence breaks with the sound of His whisper
His words fill my soul and renew my strength
His presence lingers and I am whole
His grace covers and I am free
His love heals and I am complete.

My journey continues.

XO
Shelly

Beautiful,Shelly....and so much truth in the simplicity of it all.
When the silence beckons...I will choose to listen to the voice of truth....the voice of HOPE, PEACE, and LOVE....the voice of my God!

What a beautiful poem! Something that I needed to read today, God's been "speaking" about His silence. It that makes any sense! haha.
