It came softly, unexpectedly but almost inevitably
A still small voice
It was calling, forcefully but almost inaudibly
A still small voice
I had to follow, by choice but submissively
That still small voice
I had to follow, faithfully but uncomprehendingly
That still small voice


It came softly, unexpectedly but almost inevitably
A challenge of faith
It was calling, forcefully but almost inaudibly
A challenge of faith
I had doubts, would I buckle submissively
to that challenge of faith?
I was shaken, would I sink uncomprehendingly
under that challenge of faith?

It came softly, unexpectedly but surely inevitably
His still small voice
It was calling, reassuringly but almost inaudibly
His still small voice
I struggled to follow, by choice and determinedly
That still small voice
I found strength, anointed uncomprehendingly
By that growing voice


It came strongly, expectedly and almost inevitably
A redeeming voice
It was calling, gently but forcefully
An empowering voice
I had to speak, by choice but submissively
The message of that voice
I had to share, faithfully and comprehendingly
The message of that voice

It came softly, unexpectedly but almost inevitably
A still small voice
It was calling, forcefully but almost inaudibly
A still small voice
They had to follow, by choice but submissively
That still small voice
They had to follow, faithfully but uncomprehendingly
That still small voice


***

He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”
Matthew 13:31-32

This is very good. I like the repetition and you can't go wrong with the message. Good job!

I like the repetiion you used in this poem. It drives the point across very easily. I did wonder if I missed something in how the mustard seed relates to the poem? I did enjoy the message though of the still small voice we all need to listen to!
