QUIET TIME
Originally written 7/3/2000

By Your blood, Your sweat and Your tears
     my heart has become strong and full of confidence

As a soldier awaits the enemy's attack
     I now stand firmly planted ~
          shielded by Faith
               girded by Truth
                    and wielding the Two-Edged sword of Your Spirit

Your Word has gone forth and I have purposed to listen and obey
     It is then Your blessings flow

And, O, how sweet the blessings
     for this I surely know

Now I lie in wait ~ at times the silence deafens

Yet, it is then my heart remembers ~
     and a song of Faith, of Hope and Peace dances freely off my
          tongue and I am assured I will never be alone

You, my Lord, are my courage and my strength ~
     that which I need to endure the silence of this Your quiet time
          until, by grace, my eyes shall see the dawning of tomorrow

"As a soldier awaits the enemy's attack I now stand firmly planted ~ shielded by Faith girded by Truth and wielding the Two-Edged sword of Your Spirit"...This is the focal point of this poem, and your ending brings my thoughts back to it...My heart is prepared for war, the war that Satan throws at us each day, and then you bring out the quiet time at the end. I love your style of poetry, as well as the shape, but most of all, I love the message. It is quieting to the heart, just what I need today....Blessings!...Helen

Oh, that blessed quiet time, for that is when we hear God the loudest. God bless.

Jody I have been blessed by this as well. When we spend quiet time with God we begin to experience the fullness of his peace. You are on fire Jody. The anointing on you is flowing. Thanks for sharing and keep writing for His glory.
