When the world around me is spinning,
and I don’t know what to do.
And my mind and spirit weaken
then it’s time to visit You.
I take some quiet time away
from all the hustle and the noise.
And forget all the things I don’t have
and thank You for all my joys.
I listen to the silence,
and it’s there I hear Your voice.
I remember what’s important,
and I know I have a choice.
You speak to me in silence
in those times I take away.
It becomes so soothing
I often wish that I could stay.
But I have tasks I left unfinished
and to them I must return.
There will be always be more quiet times
to heal, and rest, and learn.
Those days that I retreat with You
are the ones that make me strong.
I keep them in my memory
for the ones that seem too long.
And I know that when I weary,
and if ever I should despair.
I’ll find a quiet place to listen,
and I will find You there.
