Topic: Discern (08/12/10)

TITLE: Note in a Fundamental Key

In the depths of each soul
Lives a voice, we are told,
That is still, and quiet, and small


Ever ready to lead
If only we’d heed
Waits in vain to answer our call


Since this simple device
That comes free…with a price
Will keep silent in face of pretention


Its power to speak
To the answers we seek
Will not fight us to get our attention


When the treasure inside
Seems bound to just hide
Never giving a nod or a clue


How then do we learn
To hear and discern
If a thing is the thing we should do?


For a moment reflect
How gross disrespect
Can hinder an answer to prayer


Distraction is used
To keep us confused
Ever dishing out clatter and blare


Satan hopes we won’t see
The nth of degree
Interruption can fool us with noise


It’s sold as a right
To disturb day and night
So our beings will miss God’s pure joys


Assault comes disguised
To our ears and our eyes
Barely veiled to cover its violence


The best of His treasure
Addressing our measure
Can only be found in sweet silence


Turn off the loud din
So the quiet voice within
Spirit-led from on high can be heard


First, ignore clamor’s rush
Then listen, but hush...

Discernment speaks softly, and always true to His WORD!
