“Are you listening?”

Are you listening? Really listening

To the voice of God; He’s calling out your name?

If you listen you will hear His voice,

you’ll be changed.

Are you listening? Really listening

To the word of God; He’s calling to your soul?

If you listen, you will hear His voice,

you’ll find life.

In the whispers of creation, His voice can be heard everyday.

In the sacred, written pages, echoes of His will and ways.

Through people, circumstances, all that will lead us to pray.

Are you listening?  Really listening

To the word of God; He’s calling out your name.

If you listen, you will hear His voice,

you’ll find life.

“Speak Lord or Let Me Rest in You”

Lord, I live in a noisy world,

Voices speak, voices shout of the answers and the right plans that work.

Yet, the voices often leave me empty, confused, depressed.

Speak Lord–or let me rest in You.

I run to a time of solitude.

I run from the world, I run to You.

Yet, my questions remain, my quest is the same.

So, Speak Lord–or let me rest in You.

Even as you meet and dine with me, refreshing my life, whole and whole,

the nagging anxiety emerges again,

I want answers, direction, and now!

So pressed, so desperate to do what is right, to know from You what is real;

Yet, acknowledging I cannot control.

Speak Lord–or let me rest in You.

Perhaps in this time, alone with You

It is not answers I so desperately need, it is not answers I need you to speak–

But only your word, “Child, rest in me”

“Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest” – Matthew 11:28
